Vietnam to develop trade defense early warning system

2020-03-11 09:16:37
Vietnam plans to develop an early warning system for trade defense by 2025, aiming to promote sustainable exports.

The goal was approved by Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc under Decision No.316/QD-TTg.

Accordingly, by 2025, an information technology infrastructure system, analysis software and an e-portal would be completed to effectively operate the early warning system and to calculate dumping margins and analyse damages.

The early warning system would provide support to investigators and relevant agencies in the investigation and handling of trade defense cases in domestic and foreign markets, as well as handling disputes at the World Trade Organization.

The system would contribute to protecting domestic production while actively avoiding and coping with trade defense lawsuits filed by foreign countries towards promoting sustainable exports.

The project will upgrade the database of imported products under investigation by Vietnam or imposed trade defense measures, products likely to avoiding trade defense measures, and products which witnessed sudden increases in imports and could cause damage to domestic production.

This would help to enhance the investigation capacity and the efficiency of applying trade defense instruments.

Within the project’s framework, training would be provided to 1,000 employees working in the fields related to trade defense to improve the capacity of providing warnings and support to businesses.

To efficiently operate the early warning system and minimize negative impacts from the international integration process, Vietnam would invest in the IT infrastructure system and complete the database of trade figures with major partners.

International cooperation would be boosted towards protecting legitimate rights of Vietnamese firms in import and export activities and closely watching compliance with international commitments of bilateral and multi-lateral trade agreements of domestic firms.

According to statistics by the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s WTO Center, there were 156 trade defense investigation cases initiated by 19 countries and territories on Vietnam’s export products as of the end of 2019. In comparison, Vietnam initiated 16 cases on imported products.
