The effect of antidumping and countervailing investigations on the market value of firms

Using a sample of listed Chinese firms between 2006 and 2012, we analyze the effect of international business strategy and government assistance on the stock market response to antidumping and countervailing investigations. We find a significantly negative abnormal return surrounding the announcements of antidumping and countervailing investigations. Furthermore, the establishment of a plant in a non-subject or ‚Äúnon-named‚ÄĚ1 country and government assistance are positively related to the abnormal returns of antidumping and countervailing investigations. Our results suggest that government assistance is as important as strategic restructuring to offset the negative effect of trade remedy investigations.

Comparison & Analysis of Anti-dumping Provisions in the FTAs signed by Korea

This paper examined and analyzed anti-dumping provisions in the free trade agreements that Korea entered or effectuated. As of November 11th 2014, Korea signed or effectuated 12 FTAs with its trading partners. Followings are areas for Improvement for New or Revised FTAs Negotiations: de minimis rule needs to be applied in reviews and criteria for terms of competition in cumulation need to be Specified. The result of this paper will be a useful reference for Korea to prepare for mega free-trade deals such as the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership, the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Free Trade Area of the Asia Pacific.

United States ‚Äď Anti-Dumping Measures on Certain Shrimp and Diamond Sawblades from China: never ending zeroing in the WTO? / Dukgeun Ahn and Patrick Messerlin

Despite many legal rulings to clarify the WTO inconsistency of zeroing practices, in practically all aspects of antidumping proceedings, the United States declined to categorically rectify the illegal antidumping duties based on zeroing calculation methods. This dispute is merely example of a number of disputes where the US government had to exhaust the whole process for proper implementation of the WTO rulings under its domestic legal system. The US approach is starkly contrasted with the position taken by the European Union that categorically terminates zeroing practices pursuant to the WTO rulings. While the WTO system indeed recognizes individual Member’s peculiar regulatory systems and policies during implementation phases, the current situation in which WTO Members must individually resort to the dispute settlement system in order to rectify the US zeroing practices raises a serious concern regarding the legitimacy and integrity of the WTO dispute settlement system. Maybe it is time for WTO Members to agree on better implementation mechanisms before more Members try to develop overly burdensome and complicated regulatory processes for compliance.

The Trade Effects of US Anti-dumping Actions against China Post-WTO Entry / Guobing Shen and Xiaolan Fu

Since China’s entry into the WTO, US anti-dumping (AD) actions against China have increased, particularly with respect to multiple petitions. Distinguishing between US single and multiple petitions, we examine the trade effects of US AD actions against China based on an unbalanced panel of quarterly trade data. The results show that a US single petition investigation greatly restrains US imports of the filed products from China but also causes more significant import diversion from non-named countries. In the short run, a preliminary AD duty imposed on China via a US multiple petition not only restrains US imports of the filed products from China but also prevents trade diversion from non-named countries. In the long run, a final AD duty on China resulting from a US multiple petition creates a larger destructive effect on China and causes US import diversion from non-named countries. Thus, a final AD duty imposed on China following a US multiple petition not only harms China’s exports but also fails to help the US achieve import substitution. Furthermore, we have been able to reveal the negative trade effect of a preliminary AD duty even in cases where the ultimate decision is not to impose a final duty.

Partisanship and antidumping / Veysel Avsar

This paper empirically examines the influence of political partisanship on antidumping protection, which has become the most frequently used contingent trade remedy in the last 20 years. First, we show that the number of antidumping initiations from the labor intensive industries increases when there is a left-wing government in power. In addition, the evidence on the governments’ decision to impose antidumping duty demonstrates that the increase in the leftist orientation of the governments is associated with an increase in the likelihood of an affirmative antidumping outcome from the petitions of labor intensive industries. Although antidumping is an administrative protection which includes a set of necessary procedures and rules to follow, our findings clearly point out the political bias in AD actions in the form of partisan preferences.
