WTO Reports Drop In New Anti-Dumping Investigations

by Mike Godfrey, Tax-News.com, Washington

15 December 2015


New anti-dumping investigations by World Trade Organization (WTO) members decreased by 12 percent to 233 in the period from July 2014 to June 2015, compared with the previous twelve months, says the WTO.

The findings are included in its new report, Overview of Developments in the International Trading Environment.

According to the report, Brazil began the most anti-dumping investigations (38), followed by India (31), and Argentina (14).

The report said that WTO members applied 178 new trade-restrictive measures in the period between mid-October 2014 to mid-October 2015. This equates to a monthly average of just under 15 new measures per month, which is stable and comparable to the previous reporting period.

The overall stockpile of restrictive measures introduced by WTO members nevertheless continued to grow, the WTO said. Of the 2,557 trade-restrictive measures, including trade remedies, introduced by WTO members since 2008 and recorded by the WTO, only 642 had been removed by mid-October 2015.

On the other hand, the report found that a total of 222 measures aimed at facilitating trade were taken between mid-October 2014 and mid-October 2015 – a monthly average of almost 19 measures – the second-highest number since the WTO started monitoring the measures.
