According to the Viet Nam Association for Seafood Exporters and Processors (VASEP), the plaintiff representing the US association of catfish farmers and processors in the anti-dumping lawsuit has withdrawn their request for administrative review on the 27 companies’ products.
The US law firm, Akin Gump Straus Hauer & Feld LLp, has sent a letter to the US Secretary of Commerce Carlos M. Gutierrez to inform him of this move, VASEP said.
However, the plaintiff still asked the US Department of Commerce to conduct the fourth administrative review on tra and basa catfish fillet exports by other Vietnamese exporters involved in the lawsuit.
