Anti-Dumping Policy

An anti-dumping policy is a trade measure implemented by governments to protect domestic industries from unfair competition caused by foreign companies selling goods in the domestic market at below-market prices.

Dumping occurs when foreign producers export goods to another country at prices lower than their domestic market prices or production costs, often with the intention of driving competitors out of the market.

Anti-dumping policies may involve imposing tariffs, quotas, or other trade barriers to prevent or mitigate the negative effects of dumping on domestic industries and safeguarding fair competition in the marketplace.
