Background

    On May 22, 2018, Commerce received AD petitions concerning imports 
of steel propane cylinders from China, Taiwan and Thailand, filed on 
behalf of the petitioners.\1\ On June 11, 2018, Commerce initiated the 
LTFV investigations of steel propane cylinders from China, Taiwan and 
Thailand, which were published in the Federal Register on June 18, 
2018.\2\ On June 14, 2018, the petitioners submitted a letter 
withdrawing the AD petition with respect to Taiwan.\3\ Section 
351.207(b)(1) of Commerce's regulations stipulates that the Secretary

termination of the investigation is in the public interest.\4\ Because

in the public interest, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.207(b)(1).\5\

1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.207(b)(1), we are 
terminating the LTFV investigation with respect to Taiwan.
