These pipes and tubes are generally known as standard pipes and tubes and are intended for the low-pressure conveyance of water, steam, natural gas, air, and other liquids and gases in plumbing and heating systems, air-conditioning units, automatic sprinkler systems, and other related uses.

Unfinished conduit pipe is also included in the order. All carbon-steel pipes and tubes within the physical description outlined above are included within the scope of the order except line pipe, oil-country tubular goods, boiler tubing, mechanical tubing, pipe and tube hollows for redraws, finished scaffolding, and finished conduit.2 Imports of these products are currently classifiable under the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) numbers: 7306.30.1000, 7306.30.5025, 7306.30.5032, 7306.30.5040, 7306.30.5055, 7306.30.5085, and 7306.30.5090.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 International Trade Administration The United States Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration, is organizing an executive-led Healthcare Business Development Mission to China with an emphasis on the Sector. The mission is proposed at the Deputy Secretary level with participation from U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to ensure adequate access to Chinese government officials. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The purpose of the mission is open access to Chinese government health officials and to introduce U.S. firms and trade associations to the Chinese Healthcare market as well as assist U.S. companies to find business partners and export their products and services to China. The mission is intended to include representatives from U.S. companies and U.S. trade associations with members that provide high end, innovative medical devices (especially imaging), healthcare technology equipment, innovative pharmaceuticals, hospital management or senior care management solutions, and medical education or training, hospital cooperation (i.e. management and education), as well as pharmaceuticals and senior care segments. Healthcare is an important issue for both the China. Today, China’s annual healthcare spending is about $590.2 billion or 5.7% of its GDP. Commerce and health are not mutually exclusive, as workers become ill and as the cost of healthcare and insurance increases there is a direct impact on business through the loss of worker productivity and skilled workers, and reduced output. With fewer healthy workers earning incomes, businesses will also be harmed by decreased size and purchasing power of consumers. Families and individuals will be burdened with the impact of reduced incomes, increased health costs, and increased likelihood of long term care. As the world’s two largest economies, how the two sides approach healthcare in the future has the potential to impact global macroeconomic stability and future economic growth. In recent years China has prioritized the reform of its healthcare system, to ensure citizens have good quality and affordable care, especially given the trends in the population and the increase in various health issues. The aging population, chronic disease and lack of fitness for children create challenges and burdens on establishing an effective healthcare system. Incidence of non-communicable disease (NCDs) such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes has rapidly increased. Economic growth is also impeded because NCDs hit workers in their prime years of productivity— creating long term chronic conditions, withdrawal from the workforce, diminished family resources and early death. Tackling the prevalence and significance of NCDs is challenging. The causes are rooted in the universal trends of aging and rapid urbanization, demographic factors which will only increase in the future. E:\FR\FM\30JNN1.SGM 30JNN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On February 24, 2016, Hyundai Steel informed the Department that, 
effective July 1, 2015, it merged with HYSCO, and requested that the 
Department conduct an expedited changed circumstances review under 
section 751(b) of the Act, 19 CFR 351.216(c), and 19 CFR 
351.221(c)(3)(ii), to confirm that Hyundai Steel is the successor-in-
interest to HYSCO for purposes of determining antidumping duty cash 
deposits and liabilities. On May 13, 2016, the Department initiated 
this changed circumstances review and published the notice of 
preliminary results, determining that Hyundai Steel is the successor-
in-interest to HYSCO.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order is circular welded non-alloy 
steel pipe and tube, of circular cross-section, not more than 406.4 
millimeters (16 inches) in outside diameter, regardless of wall 
thickness, surface finish (black, galvanized, or painted), or end 
finish (plain end, beveled end, threaded, or threaded and coupled). 
These pipes and tubes are generally known as standard pipes and tubes 
and are intended for the low-pressure conveyance of water, steam, 
natural gas, air, and other liquids and gases in plumbing and heating 
systems, air-conditioning units, automatic sprinkler systems, and other 
related uses. Standard pipe may also be used for light load-bearing 
applications, such as for fence tubing, and as structural pipe tubing 
used for framing and as support members for reconstruction or load-
bearing purposes in the construction, shipbuilding, trucking, farm 
equipment, and other related industries. Unfinished conduit pipe is 
also included in the order.
    All carbon-steel pipes and tubes within the physical description 
outlined above are included within the scope of the order except line 
pipe, oil-country tubular goods, boiler tubing, mechanical tubing, pipe 
and tube hollows for redraws, finished scaffolding, and finished 
conduit.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Final Negative Determination of Scope Inquiry on Certain 
Circular Welded Non-Alloy Steel Pipe and Tube from Brazil, the 
Republic of Korea, Mexico, and Venezuela, 61 FR 11608 (March 21, 
1996). In accordance with this determination, pipe certified to the 
API 5L line-pipe specification and pipe certified to both the API 5L 
line-pipe specifications and the less-stringent ASTM A-53 standard-
pipe specifications, which falls within the physical parameters as 
outlined above, and entered as line pipe of a kind used for oil and 
gas pipelines, is outside of the scope of the AD order.

Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review

    For the reasons stated in the Initiation and Preliminary Results, 
and because we received no comments from interested parties, the 
Department finds that Hyundai Steel is the successor-in-interest to 
HYSCO. As a result of this determination, we find that Hyundai Steel 
should receive the cash deposit rate assigned to HYSCO in the most 
recently completed review of the antidumping duty order on CWP from 
Korea.\3\ Consequently, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection to suspend liquidation of all shipments of subject 
merchandise produced or exported by Hyundai Steel and entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication 
date of this notice in the Federal Register at 1.62 percent, which is 
the current antidumping duty cash-deposit rate for HYSCO. This cash 
deposit requirement shall remain in effect until further notice.
