The Bulgarian government is to stem a boom in imports of white tinplate crown corks. Sofia is imposing temporary safeguard duties to protect Bulgaria's production of this key drinks packaging product, used to seal glass bottles. It told the World Trade Organisation that imports in 1999 increased by 673% compared to 1998, and by 874% in 2000, which "contributed significantly to domestic products' price decline and to reduced profitability."
