Economic recession is leading to greater protectionism around the world. Given the current economic situation, many industries may not be able to compete with imports. India has laws and rules on all the three trade remedies available under the WTO framework, i.e. anti-dumping duties, countervailing duties and safeguard measures. Knowledge of these laws and their operation will be useful for the industry as well as for other relevant stakeholders. This programme will provide practical inputs on issues such as calculation of dumping margin and injury and protection of one’s exports from the imposition of trade remedial measures in export markets.
