(Starbright) under the countervailing duty order on certain new pneumatic off-the- road tires (OTR Tires) from the People's Republic of China (PRC) for the period December 17, 2007, through December 31, 2008. Following the preliminary results, we received comments from Starbright, Titan Tire Corporation (Titan), the petitioner in the original investigation, and Bridgestone Americas, Inc. and Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, LLC (collectively Bridgestone), a domestic interested party in the original investigation. Based on our analysis of the comments, we have determined that no changes should be made in these final results. We determine that subsidies are being provided to Starbright for the production and export of OTR Tires from the PRC. The subsidy rate is set forth in the Final Results of Review section below.
Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From Brazil, India, the People's Republic of China, Thailand, and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Amended Antidumping Duty Orders in Accordance with Final Court Decision
On April 14, 2010, the U.S. Court of International Trade (``CIT'') sustained the remand redetermination \1\ issued by the Department of Commerce (``Department'') pursuant to the CIT's remand order involving the antidumping duty investigations of certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil, Ecuador, India, the People's Republic of China (``PRC''), Thailand, and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (``Vietnam'').\2\ On March 30, 2011, the U.S. International Trade Commission (``ITC'') notified the Department of its final determinations in the five-year (sunset) reviews concerning the antidumping duty orders on frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil, the PRC, India, Thailand, and Vietnam, in which it found that revocation of these orders would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time to a U.S. industry. The ITC also found the domestic like product to include dusted shrimp. See id. at footnote 22. In light of the CIT's final decision and the ITC's sunset determination, the Department is now issuing amended antidumping duty orders that include dusted shrimp within the scope of the orders.
