[WASHINGTON] The US government said on Friday domestic producers of fabricated structural steel were being harmed by imports from China, Canada and Mexico.

The US Commerce Department said in a statement that fabricated structural steel from the three countries had been sold at less than fair value at rates of up to 6.7 per cent for Canada, up to 154.1 per cent for China and up to 30.6 per cent for Mexico.

It also said steel from China and Mexico had received unfair subsidies at rates of up to 206.5 per cent for China and up to 68.9 per cent for Mexico.

The department said its investigation found that fabricated structural steel from Canada had not received unfair subsidies.
