US: Donald Trump signs executive orders to crack down on dumping duty non-payment

Posted on Updated on

President Donald Trump signed two executive orders on 31 March 2017 in relation to enforcement of anti-dumping laws. The White House intends to combat global trade abuses and protect U.S. workers.

In his first executive order the focus is on tougher enforcement of anti-dumping laws and increasing the collection of anti-dumping penalties and so-called countervailing duties.  The second executive order calls on the Commerce Department and U.S. trade representative to produce a comprehensive report to identify “every possible cause of the U.S. trade deficit.” Administration officials have 90 days to finish a country-by-country and product-by-product analysis in relation to the deficit.
