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 “non-named”1 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.

Interpreting the ‘Removal’ Obligation in Article 7.8 of the WTO SCM Agreement / Abhimanyu George Jain

ABSTRACT: The meaning of the phrase ‘remove the adverse effects’ as used in Art. 7.8 of the WTO Subsidies and Countervailing Measures Agreement (SCM Agreement) is unclear; it has been explored neither in the jurisprudence of the DSM, nor in academic literature. There are three fundamental principles underlying the interpretation of the SCM agreement – avoidance of economic analyses, proscription of retrospective remedies and interpretation of ‘withdrawal’ in Art. 4.7 as prospective cessation. Based on these fundamental interpretive principles, there are several possible meanings of the removal obligation, including equivalent subsidisation, price controls and quantitative restrictions. In the absence of decisive reasons to prefer one over the other, the removal obligation should be construed as a result rather than process obligation. This analytical inquiry demonstrates the problems engendered and perpetuated by the avoidance of economic analyses in interpretation of the SCM Agreement.
