Currently, Indonesia is involved in several trade remedy disputes both as a complainant and respondent. With support from ARISE+ Indonesia, the Directorate of Trade Defense (DPP), Ministry of Trade will host four half-day online workshops to enhance its capacity to initiate and respond in respect of trade remedy actions.

The overall objective of the workshops is to improve the advocacy and communication skills of the Anti-Dumping Committee (KADI), Trade Safeguard Committee (KPPI), DPP, trade lawyers and the private sector in understanding WTO proceedings related to Particular Market Situation, Anti-Circumvention, Dispute Settlements in Safeguards and Less Than Adequate Remuneration (LTAR) in Countervailing Investigations.


The workshop schedule is as follows:


Particular Market Situations in Anti-Dumping

Tuesday, 12 October 2021 at 14:00-17:00 (Indonesian Time GMT+7)

Over the last few years, the resort to "Particular Market Situation" (PMS) as a rationale to reject the domestic selling price in an exporting country for purposes of determining the margin of dumping has increased significantly. However, this practice has been overturned by the WTO Dispute Settlement Body on several occasions, making it unclear when and how PMS may be applied in anti-dumping investigations. Indonesia itself has been subjected to PMS determinations on at least two occasions. 

The purpose of the workshop is to increase participants' understanding of Normal Value, including identifying situations where prices or costs in the exporting country are not appropriate for determining Normal Value and the relationship between Particular Market Situations and Significant Distortions.



Wednesday, 13 October 2021 at 14:00-17:00 (Indonesian Time GMT+7)

Exporters and importers sometimes use circumvention as a trading strategy to avoid paying anti-dumping or countervailing duties. Indonesian companies can apply for an anti-circumvention inquiry if they are part of the Indonesian industry producing goods to those covered by the measures.

The workshop aims to improve the technical skills of government officials and the private sector in conducting anti-circumvention reviews and measures.


Dispute Settlements in Safeguards

Thursday, 14 October 2021 at 14:00-17:00 (Indonesian Time GMT+7)

The workshop aims to increase understanding of dispute settlement in safeguards and improve participants' technical skills in safeguard investigations. The workshop will discuss the issues during dispute settlements in safeguards, including Article XIX issues, substantive issues, procedural issues, safeguard measures and reviews.


Less Than Adequate Remuneration (LTAR) in Countervailing Investigations

Thursday, 14 October 2021 at 14:00-17:00 (Indonesian Time GMT+7)

The workshop's objective is to improve the technical capacities of KADI in calculating the margin of subsidy for goods and services provided by the Government.
