The causes of increase in antidumping against transition economies


  • Isayenko Oleksiy


  • Shcherbakov Oleksandr



The share of antidumping investigations against transition economies in the total number of investigations increased from 20 to over than 40 percent during the last decade. There are two opposite explanations of this trend among economists. One group argues that the growth of antidumping investigations is caused by direct and indirect subsidies to exporters in transition economies. Others see the main cause in the inability of transition economies to protect their interests in international trade. In this paper, the authors develop an econometric model that evaluates the comparative weight of each factor that influences the antidumping activity against transition economies. On the base of obtained results policy recommendations are designed to improve international trade efficiency
