How U.S. Antidumping Policy Undermines U.S. Competitiveness:
A Pro-Reform Perspective
Tuesday, June 28, 2011
3:00 PM - 6:30 PM (Reception To Follow)
The Cato Institute

Washington, DC 20001
If the Obama administration and Congress are truly concerned about U.S. manufacturing competitiveness and increasing export opportunities, then antidumping policy must be reformed. Imports of raw materials, intermediate goods and capital equipment — products consumed by U.S. producers — account for the majority of U.S. import value. Meanwhile, those kinds of manufacturing inputs are subject to 4 out of every 5 antidumping measures imposed. The case is clear that current U.S. antidumping policy undermines U.S. manufacturing competitiveness at home and abroad, and reform is imperative.
In light of the Obama administration's efforts to facilitate export growth and help improve U.S. manufacturing competitiveness, three panels of experts will discuss various features of U.S. antidumping law that undermine those objectives and offer proposals for reform.
