Indian Antibiotic Faces Anti-dumping Duties in China
In its effort to safeguard the interest of its local pharmaceutical producers, China has imposed an anti-dumping duty of up to 37.7 per cent on Indian manufactured antibiotic sulfamethoxazole.

The anti-dumping duty tax rate has been increased from 10.7 per cent to 37.7 per cent and the tax would be in effect for five years.

Sulfamethoxazole is a sulfonamide bacteriostatic antibiotic and also serves as an important material in producing other sulfonamides. It is commonly used to treat urinary tract infections.
