Abstract: Anti-dumping and countervailing duty actions are legitimate measures permitted under the GATT/WTO rules, and are now the most frequently used trade remedies. Over the past decade, 2,500 anti-dumping actions and almost 300 countervailing duty actions have been initiated and notified to the GATT/WTO. The strengthening of the multilateral disciplines on safeguards - including the prohibition and elimination of voluntary export restraints and the commitments to phase out the Multi-Fibre Arrangement (MFA) quotas under the Agreement on Textiles and Clothing (ATC) - appears to have provoked an increasing resort to anti-dumping measures. Certain countries and product sectors, such as steel and textiles, have been targeted more than others. At the same time, there has been an increasing resort to anti-dumping measures by non-traditional users -particularly developing countries - many of which have introduced anti-dumping and countervailing legislation since the entry into force of the WTO Agreements. Developing countries continue to be the main targets of anti-dumping measures. This has the effect of creating instability and uncertainty for their exports, which has resulted in reductions in trade volumes and market shares for their goods.The increased resort to anti-dumping measures and the rising number of disputes related to these measures, have prompted many countries, including several developing countries, to call for improvements in the application of these measures. This note identifies some major issues and areas of concern that have arisen in the ongoing debate on anti-dumping and countervailing measures which could be addressed by experts in the light of their concrete experiences
