IDI International Development and Investment Corp. v. United States
by: Baker

Section: Federal Circuit and CIT Case Summaries

The CIT sustained Commerce’s decision to deny IDI International Development and Investment Corporation’s separate rate application in the antidumping duty investigation of certain frozen fish fillets from Vietnam. IDI failed to demonstrate the lack of de facto government control over the selection of management. Commerce found that a Vietnamese government official and Communist Party member represented the Vietnamese government on the board of IDI and its parent company, and that there was no record evidence supporting the notion that the board of IDI ever acted against the government official. As a result, Commerce determined that IDI’s entries were subject to the Vietnam-wide rate.
