Summary

A Turkish textile exporter facing pending EU anti-dumping duties tries to sort out the mess and to decide whether he should accept the Commission’s offer of a price agreement. Whether he should or not depends on the chances that permanent duties will be voted on at the Council. What are the risks on either side?

Teaching objectives

The case?s objective is to understand anti-dumping from a practical and conceptual point of view. Are investigations biased or politically influenced? Does anti-dumping make sense from an economic point of view?
