Philippines: The Philippine Competition Commission (PCC) says it will consider a new tariff on imported cement as part of its investigation into alleged anti-competitive behaviour. In early January 2019 The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) said it would impose a provisional safeguard duty of US$0.16/bag on imported cement, according to the Philippine Star newspaper. The PCC started its latest investigation into the cement industry in 2017. Previously it said it planned to complete the study in 2019.
