We explore China's behaviour in taking anti-dumping actions, with a focus on those which have been challenged under the WTO dispute settlement mechanism. We argue that the typical motivations behind China's resort to anti-dumping measures include protection, retaliation, industrial development and export promotion. These motivations are likely to carry more weight than China's observance of WTO obligations when deciding whether to impose anti-dumping measures and whether to implement WTO rulings. Brief recommendations are provided to foreign governments and exporters on how to avoid China's anti-dumping actions.
本文探讨中国采取反倾销措施的原因, 特别是中国已受到世界贸易组织争端解决机构审理的反倾销措施。本文认为这些原因包括国内企业保护、报复性措施、产业发展、及出口促进。由于这些原因, 中国很可能会在决定是否采取反倾销措施时不理会世界贸易组织相关规则或争端解决机构的判决。本文也为外国政府及出口商如何应对中国的反倾销措施提供简短的建议。
