Cases of trade defence against EU

More than 130 cases of trade defence actions taken by non-EU countries against EU exports were registered on 2012, the European Commission’s latest Trade Defence annual report shows.
Trade defence represents the protection of production against international trade distortions. Ways of defending trade are anti-dumping or anti-subsidy duties. The World Trade Organisation sets the global framework for anti-dumping and anti-subsidy rules.
2012 saw the total number of cases levelling off compared to the previous two years, but there was a surge in new cases towards the year end. Hence, last year there were registered eight cases less than the year before, but still 15 more than in 2010.
Last year, the Commission stepped up its monitoring of trade defence actions taken by non-EU countries. 2012 saw India, with 21 cases against the EU, as the biggest user of trade defence against EU or its Member States, overtaking the US, the historical leader, with 18. China came third with 16 cases, but it was Indonesia that launched the most new investigations.
