Commission Determination Not to Close Any Part of the Hearing to the Public.


The Commission has determined to deny a request to conduct a portion of its hearing in the above-captioned investigations scheduled for December 13, 2012 in camera. See Commission rules 207.24(d), 201.13(m) and 201.36(b)(4) (19 CFR 207.24(d), 201.13(m) and 201.36(b)(4)).

The Commission believes that respondents CS Wind Tech. Co., Ltd., CS Wind Vietnam Co., Ltd., Chengxi Shipyard Co., Ltd., Titan Wind Energy (Suzhou) Co., Ltd., Shanghai Taisheng Wind Power Equipment Co., Ltd., the China Chamber of Commerce for Import & Export of Machinery & Electronic Products and Siemens Energy, Inc. have not justified the need for resorting to the extraordinary measure of an in camera hearing.

Accordingly, the Commission has determined that the public interest would be best served by a hearing that is entirely open to the public.
