A seminar on US anti-dumping and countervailing duty proceedings to protect exports from US anti-dumping and countervailing measures was held in Hanoi on May 24.

The seminar was jointly held by Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) and the Trade Remedies Council.

According to Tran Huu Huynh, VCCI Deputy General Secretary, one of the effective ways for exporters to protect their legitimate interests is to bring disputed cases to the US Courts or the WTO dispute settlement system.

The seminar helped Vietnamese enterprises, associations and relevant agencies understand and gain experience in using these two tools to cope with disadvantages brought by anti-dumping and countervailing cases in the US market.
