China's Anti-dumping System turns 10

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the anti-dumping system in China, the MOFCOM held a conference on the Law and Practice of Anti-dumping System in China from the 25th to 26th of June. At the conference, Vice-Minister Gao Hucheng noted that Chinese firms have become more willing to use international rules to protect their own interests, while the Chinese investigating authorities have greatly improved their ability to apply anti-dumping measures and participate in making international rules. As a result, China has initiated 48 investigations and adopted anti-dumping measures in 35 cases. Indeed, according to the statistics from the WTO, China has become one of the major users of anti-dumping measures.

Notwithstanding its achievements, China's anti-dumping system still suffers from some major problems. In the article "Procedural Issues in the Anti-Dumping Regulations of China: A Critical Review Under the WTO Rules", I analyzed some of these problems. You can find the article here.
