(Corrects lower end of anti-dumping duties range to 42.2%, not 24.2%, in paragraph 2.)
BEIJING, June 19 (Reuters) - China’s Ministry of Commerce on Wednesday said it will maintain anti-dumping and anti-subsidy tariffs on imports of U.S. distillers grains (DDGS), a cereal by-product of ethanol manufacturing, after completing a review launched in April.
The ministry cited potential damage to domestic producers in its decision to retain anti-dumping duties of 42.2%-53.7% and anti-subsidy tariffs of 11.2%-12% on DDGS products from the United States.
The review was launched amid trade talks between Beijing and Washington aimed at ending the prolonged China-United States trade war that has roiled global markets.
