CFS paper exported by the Chinese manufacturers was reported not to be subject to antidumping findings or remedies in any WTO-member countries.14 Table VII-4 lists overall capacity and production data for products manufactured on the same equipment and machinery used in the production of the subject merchandise, and table VII-5 provides data on Chinese production and exports to the United States by type of product. As shown, most CFS paper production in China is in the form of sheets (and sheeter rolls). The production of CFS web rolls, however, rose from 2003 to 2005, with the increase paired with the start (at least during the period examined) of web exports to the United States.
