1 Because of the apparent under reporting of U.S. imports from Indonesia in official Commerce statistics, the data for Indonesia are exports to the United States as reported by the Indonesian industry. E-mail from Adams Lee, White & Case, December 7, 2006. If the monthly export data were lagged by one month to account for shipping (i.e., September 2005-August 2006), CFS paper from Indonesia would total *** short tons and account for 4.1 percent of total “imports”. If official Commerce statistics are used for Indonesia, such imports accounted for 3.2 percent of total U.S. imports for the 12-month period.

Source: Compiled from official Commerce statistics (China, Korea, and nonsubject). The following statistical categories of the HTS were used: 4810.13.1900; 4810.13.2010; 4810.13.2090; 4810.13.5000; 4810.13.7040;

      • 4810.19.2090

        ; and, for China only, 4811.59.2000 and 4811.90.8000. Data for Indonesia were submitted by

counsel for Pindo Deli and Tjiwi Kimia.

Note.–As noted earlier, the question has arisen concerning possible misclassification of subject imports both for China and, potentially, for other sources. Counsel for Pindo Deli and Tjiwi Kimia indicated in an e-mail to the Commission (November 29, 2006) that:

“It does appear that a small quantity of imports from Indonesia entered under HTS headings 4811.59.2000 and 4811.90.8000 during the period. It is not clear that imports from Indonesia that enter under those HTS headings is subject merchandise. . . Should the case proceed to a final, the Indonesian respondents reserve the right to examine whether subject merchandise from other countries is entering under HTS headings beyond those listed in the petition and the definitions, and thus, is properly included in the denominator of the negligibility calculation.”
