The article discusses antidumping (AD) cases brought by developing countries against U.S. exporters and what U.S. exporters can do to defend themselves during AD investigations. Since the World Trade Organization (WTO) was created in 1995, major developing countries such as India and China have been required to eliminate or reduce a number of the trade barriers – such as high normal duties and low quotas – they had used to protect their domestic industries from foreign import competition. While reducing these trade barriers, these countries have increasingly turned to imposing antidumping (AD) duties to protect their domestic producers.
