Background

    On May 13, 2020, the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, 
Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers 
International Union, AFL-CIO, CLC (``USW''), Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, 
filed petitions with the Commission and Commerce, alleging that an 
industry in the United States is materially injured or threatened with 
material injury by reason of subsidized imports of passenger vehicle 
and light truck tires from Vietnam and LTFV imports of passenger 
vehicle and light truck tires from Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and 
Vietnam. Accordingly, effective May 13, 2020, the Commission instituted 
countervailing duty investigation No. 701-TA-647 and antidumping duty 
investigation Nos. 731-TA-1517-1520 (Preliminary).
    Notice of the institution of the Commission's investigations and of

posting copies of the notice in the Office of the Secretary, U.S. 
International Trade Commission, Washington, DC, and by publishing the 
notice in the Federal Register of May 19, 2020 (85 FR 29972). In light 
of the restrictions on access to the Commission building due to the 
COVID-19 pandemic, the Commission conducted its conference through 
written questions, submissions of opening remarks and written 
testimony, written responses to questions, and postconference briefs. 
All persons who requested the opportunity were permitted to 
participate.
    The Commission made these determinations pursuant to sections 
703(a) and 733(a) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b(a) and 1673b(a)). It 
completed and filed its determinations in these investigations on July 
24, 2020. The views of the Commission are contained in USITC 
Publication 5093 (July 2020), entitled Passenger Vehicle and Light 
Truck Tires from Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam: Investigation 
Nos. 701-TA-647 and 731-TA-1517-1520 (Preliminary).
