Anti-dumping in the Doha Development Agenda
Publication date : 29/11/2007 | Document Number : 103 /281
At the Ministerial Conference of the WTO in Hong Kong in December 2005, the commitment to negotiations on rules as expressed in the Doha Declaration was reaffirmed by WTO members. They also acknowledged that the achievement of substantial results on all aspects of the “rules” mandate is important to the overall balance of results in the Doha Development Agenda (DDA).
For ICC, the negotiations on anti-dumping to clarify and improve WTO disciplines in this area are an important element of the DDA negotiations. Countries all over the world, both developed and developing, actively use anti-dumping measures‡. Improvements and clarifications to the WTO anti-dumping instrument, based on the experience until now, have therefore become necessary. This element of the “rules” negotiations in the DDA can therefore produce very concrete and tangible results for business in all countries on this key issue.
