Philippines: The Philippines Tariff Commission has started a formal investigation into the provisional safeguard tariff placed by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). Consumer group Laban Konsyumer asked the commission to place a temporary restraining order on the tax but the body said it lacked the power to do so, according to the Philippine Star newspaper. The commission has three months to reach its verdict. The DTI placed tariffs on cement imports in January 2019 to protect local producers.
