US has raised the average anti-dumping duty to 2.67% upfrom 0.79% – a near 300% increase that follows the FourthAdministrative review by the US authorities. Puts seafood exporters of India into trouble.There is a provision for these small producers to challengethe duty imposed by the US, if they think they are notdumpingThough doing so might prove to be very expensive and timeconsuming.Since there is not much local market it is difficult to identifythe normal price.Also, due to lower operational or transportation or laborcosts, low cost could be fair.
EFFECT OF ANTI-DUMPING TO INDIA AND THEWORLD AROUND A decline in the aggregate annual import of about 7% in the year 1993 from a growth of 17.4% in imports arising due to trade liberalization in 1992. In general, trade from the subject country is restricted when the anti- dumping duties are levied. Right after the case is filed and during the duration of investigation, imports drop by a large amount (91%) from pre-petition level. by the next year after the case has been filed, imports start going up again (rise by 53%). Overall imports fall in response to anti-dumping duties, by a small but considerable amount
