Recent Experience

 
Represented KG Dongbu Group and Baosteel Group in the Thai antidumping investigations on imports of Tinplate (TP) & Tin Free Steel (TFS) from China and Korea. China Iron and Steel Association (CISA). Weerawong C&P was able to successfully obtain a low anti-dumping duty rate for KG Dongbu in the TFS case and zero percent rate in the TP case, as well as for our Chinese client, Baosteel in October 2021.

 
Represented Deestone Group, the largest domestic tire producers and exporters in Thailand, in the U.S. Antidumping investigation on Imports of Passenger Vehicles and Light Trucks (PVLT) from Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. Supporting the White & Case trade team based in Washington, D.C., Weerawong C&P was able to secure the lowest all other rate for Thailand (17.08%), by far the lowest among the four subject Asian countries, thereby giving Deestone the competitive advantage vis-à-vis its competitors in Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam in the highly competitive U.S. tire market in May 2021. USD 4 billion (value of imported PVLT from the 4 subject countries)

Represented UACJ, China Nonferrous Metals Industry Association (CNIA), and Valeo in Thailand Safeguards Investigation on Imports of Aluminum Foils. This safeguard investigation was a high-profile trade dispute involving aluminum foil imports which are widely used in key industries such as air-conditioning (Thailand is the world no.1 exporter) and packaging industries. As Japan and China are top exporting countries of aluminum products, our clients, UACJ and CNIA, both had significant stakes in the outcome. Weerawong C&P successfully contributed to the final successful outcome in the termination of the investigation in August 2020. USD 300 million (value of imports in Thailand in 2019)
