Commentary: It's a Case of the Pot Calling the Kettle 'Black Liquor'
Four paper companies that received well over $1 million in dubious black-liquor subsidies from the U.S. and Canadian governments are suing to stop "unfair" competition from foreign competitors.
Domtar, Packaging Corp. of America, Finch Paper, and P.H. Glatfelter joined with the United Steelworkers union Wednesday to announce they had filed "antidumping petitions against unfairly priced imports" of uncoated freesheet paper from China, Indonesia, Brazil, Portugal, and Australia.
Part of their justification for seeking levies on certain paper imports is that China and Indonesia unfairly subsidized their paper companies’ exports.
