John Lynch on Free Trade

Democratic NH Governor

Enforce anti-dumping laws against unfair trade practices

Gov. Lynch today applauded the Department of Commerce's decision to reinstate its anti-dumping order against Tokyo Kikai Seisakusho (TKS). "American companies and workers can compete anywhere in the world when the playing field is level; but that was not occurring in this case. I applaud the action to reinstate the anti-dumping order against TKS, and for demonstrating that the US will act to enforce trade laws and to make sure US companies can compete fairly," Gov. Lynch said.

Gov. Lynch had urged the Department of Commerce to take strong action, after it concluded in a preliminary decision that TKS engaged in a series of deceptive acts to hide its dumping of products at below-market prices.

"Goss International Corporation employs more than a thousand workers in the State of New Hampshire and they produce world-class, industry-leading technology," Gov. Lynch said. "The Department of Commerce recognized that these jobs should not be jeopardized because of unfair trade practices."
