On Tuesday, Mexico's Economy Ministry (SE) said it has formally imposed anti-dumping duties on imports of carbon steel pipe from South Korea, Spain, India, and Ukraine after completing an investigation into “unfair trade practices.

The investigation came at the request of a company and covered an analysis of the period from April 2013 to March 2016, the ministry said in a statement.

Mexico has imposed duties in recent years on steel products from several countries after local steelmakers announced cuts in thousands of jobs in 2015 and canceled investments.

Last month, Mexico's Economy Ministry imposed anti-dumping duties on imports of carbon and alloy steel pipe from China after completing an investigation into “unfair” trade practices as well.
