Judicial review application by NZ Steel against Minister's decision (based on investigation and advice from MBIE) that Chinese galvanised steel coil imports were subject only to minimal subsidisation such that no material injury is being caused to domestic industry and that no duty should be imposed under the Dumping and Countervailing Act 1988. HC held MBIE applied wrong law in deciding whether entities providing alleged subsidies to Chinese producers qualified as "government". Minister also inadequately informed about relevant information from overseas investigations into similar matters which had come to contrary conclusions. Minister's decision quashed and reinvestigation ordered.
