Aprisindo, the Indonesia footwear association, is setting up a team to investigate the dumping of Indonesian shoes on the Brazilian market and fight a 13.85 percent anti-dumping duty that Brazil has levied against Indonesian footwear imports. The trade group claimed in the local press that the added tax is ?politically motivated,? as the country previously levied anti-dumping duties on China to protect its local shoe manufacturing industry. Aprisindo further claimed that Brazilian officials believe that Indonesian-made footwear showing up there is actually being shipped from China. However, with a total value of just $20 million last year, the organization said those imports would hurt Brazil's domestic shoe business financially.
