In recent years, global society is facing fiercer business competition, excess production and other international challenges. Against this backdrop, a growing number of countries have been making use of anti-dumping (AD) measures in order to recover fair competition environments.
In this seminar, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) will explain recent trends in AD measures, effects brought about by utilization of such measures and other issues.
1. Outline and purpose
If an exporting country sets the price of a certain type of goods lower than the domestic price of such goods in an importing country, e.g., Japan, and exports such goods at the lower price to the importing country (dumping exports) and if the importing country finds that the exports cause material injury to its domestic industry, the importing country is permitted to impose anti-dumping duties on the goods in question to compensate for the gap between the prices. This measure is called an “anti-dumping measure” and the implementation of this measure is allowed under the Agreements of the World Trade Organization (WTO).
Between 2011 and 2017, the number of AD implementations worldwide nearly doubled.
In this seminar, METI will explain recent trends in AD measures, effects brought about by utilization of such measures and other issues.
