***Note: All uncooperative behaviors or insufficient cooperation will lead to the result that the Investigating Body will use adverse available evidence or apply anti-dumping duty proposed by the applications. In case of being applied anti-dumping duty, competitive advantage will decline, which results in the risk of losing a part or the whole export market to domestic manufacturing industry of the Philippines and/or competitors from other countries.
