BEIJING, May 5 (Xinhua) -- China's Ministry of Commerce (MOC) said Thursday in a final ruling that the United States has dumped subsidized sedans and sport utility vehicles with engine displacement of 2.5 liters or bigger on the Chinese market.
The move has harmed China's domestic auto manufacturing industries, the MOC said in a statement on its website.
However, the statement continued to say that China would not take anti-dumping and countervailing measures on these vehicles until further notice.
This came after an initial ruling the MOC announced on April 2, which said a preliminary investigation found the U.S. had dumped cars onto the Chinese market.
China launched the anti-dumping and anti-subsidy investigation into auto imports from the U.S. on November 6, 2009 at the request of the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, which represents Chinese car-makers.
