Washington, DC – Congressman Tim Ryan made the following statement today in response to the International Trade Commission’s (ITC) unanimous renewal of antidumping and countervailing duty orders on oil country tubular goods (OCTG) from China:

“I am pleased that the International Trade Commission has agreed to keep in place trade rules that allow our country to stay competitive. This decision proves that China remains steadfast in their attempts to undermine American industries and our workforce, and I will continue to do everything in my power to combat these unlawful attacks. American manufacturing is the backbone of our nation. We have the hardest working, most productive workforce in the world, but they need a level playing field. I am pleased that this ruling allows them to continue to compete globally,” said Congressman Ryan.
