QINGDAO, China (Jan. 6, 2014) — The 11th China Qingdao International Tire Fair (CTF) 2014 will be held April 9-11 at Qingdao International Convention Center.
The CTF was founded in 2004. Last year the 10th edition doubled in advertising investment with more than 20,000 visitors and covered 430 square feet, according to a news release.
Show promoters said CTF has become an international platform for information, exchange, market development and entrepreneurial communication in the rubber and tire industry for the Asia-Pacific area.
Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?
|I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.||
|I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.||
|I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.||
|I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.||
|I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.||
