Aluminum Wire and Cable From China; Determinations
    On the basis of the record \1\ developed in the subject
investigations, the United States International Trade Commission
(``Commission'') determines, pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930 (``the
Act''), that an industry in the United States is materially injured by
reason of imports of aluminum wire and cable from China, provided for
in subheading 8544.49.90 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the
United States, that have been found by the U.S. Department of Commerce
(``Commerce'') to be sold in the United States at less than fair value
(``LTFV''), and to be subsidized by the government of China.
    \1\ The record is defined in sec. 207.2(f) of the Commission's
Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 207.2(f)).
    The Commission, pursuant to sections 705(b) and 735(b) of the Act
(19 U.S.C. 1671d(b) and 19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)), instituted these
investigations effective September 21, 2018, following receipt of
petitions filed with the Commission and Commerce by Encore Wire
Corporation, McKinney, Texas, and Southwire Company, LLC, Carrollton,
Georgia. The final phase of the investigations was scheduled by the
Commission following notification of preliminary determinations by
Commerce that imports of aluminum wire and cable from China were
subsidized within the meaning of section 703(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C.
1671b(b)) and sold at LTFV within the meaning of 733(b) of the Act (19
U.S.C. 1673b(b)). Notice of the scheduling of the final phase of the
Commission's investigations and of a public hearing to be held in
connection therewith was given by posting copies of the notice in the
Office of the Secretary, U.S. International Trade Commission,
Washington, DC, and by publishing the notice in the Federal Register on
June 28, 2019 (84 FR 31101). The hearing was held in Washington, DC, on
October 17, 2019, and all persons who requested the opportunity were
permitted to appear in person or by counsel.
    The Commission made these determinations pursuant to sections
705(b) and 735(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671d(b) and 19 U.S.C.
1673d(b)). It completed and filed its determinations in these
investigations on December 16, 2019. The views of the Commission are
contained in USITC Publication 5001 (December 2019), entitled Aluminum
Wire and Cable from China: Investigation Nos. 701-TA-611 and 731-TA-
1428 (Final).
    By order of the Commission.
