Experts warn of increase in anti-dumping measures

China's textile industry encountered 14 anti-dumping cases in overseas markets in 2008 and is the only sector that suffers the most foreign trade remedy investigations. Experts expect the trend to increase in 2009, due to the recessionary trends.

Of the 14 antidumping cases initiated against Chinese textile products, most of the cases originated in developing countries, including 4 in Turkey, 3 in Argentina, 2 in Brazil and 2 in India.

Although the Sino-US textile quota agreement expired on December 31, 2008, US textile trade bodies are still strongly continuing to urge the government to restrict textile imports from China, which is ultimately going to lead to trade frictions.

As a follow up to representations from the trade bodies, the US Congress has instructed the International Trade Commission to keep a keen eye on imports of Chinese textiles and apparels, particularly, import quantity, value, price and market share.

In addition, the United States has lodged a protest at the World Trade Organisation (WTO) on December 19, 2008, charging that China had provided subsidies to six sectors in violation of WTO rules, which includes the textile industry.

In the current economic downturn, the labor-intensive textile industry is on the recovery in the United Kingdom. Other developed countries may also follow suit and strengthen protection on their textile industries, in a bid to save jobs.
