China will review anti-dumping duties levied on potato starch imported from the EU, which are due to expire on Tuesday, the Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) announced.

The review was requested by the China Starch Industry Association over concerns that domestic producers might suffer if the duties are scrapped.

During the investigation, which started on Tuesday and will probably last a year, the current duties will continue to be levied, according to the Chinese Ministry of Commerce.

Potato starch imports from the EU are subject to anti-dumping duties ranging from 12.6% to 56.7%, according to a MOFCOM ruling on February 5, 2013.

In September 2017, MOFCOM extended anti-subsidy duties on potato starch from the EU for five years.
