China's Haier Group to export TV sets from Jordan, avoiding steep US duties

Leading Chinese home appliance
maker Haier Group plans to sell TV
sets to American consumers via
Jordan, enabling it to avoid US
anti-dumping duties, the Chinese
government said Tuesday.

Haier Jordan will soon sign wholesale contracts for exports to the United States of TV sets marked "made in Jordan," which are entitled to exemption from customs duties, the Commerce Ministry said in a statement on its website.

The move appears designed to allow Haier Group, one of China's leading refrigerator and TV makers, avoid US anti-dumping duties imposed on Chinese TV exporters.

Under a treaty between Jordan and the United States, any products made in Jordan's so-called QIZ zone are free from customs duties and quotas if exported to the American market, the ministry said. Products made in other parts of Jordan also enjoy preferential customs duties, the ministry said.

Having started trial operation last year, Haier Jordan produces TV sets, washing machines and refrigerators, mainly for export to Middle East countries such as Iraq, Syria and Lebanon.

Haier, along with several other Chinese TV makers, was hit by a 21.49 percent anti-dumping duty by the US Department of Commerce in April this year.

Other Chinese TV makers seem to have adopted similar strategies to avoid this unwelcome blow to their competitiveness in the United States.

Hisense Co. has set up TV production lines in Hungary, which started operations last month, while Konka Group has established facilities in Mexico.
