China has become the world’s largest economy affected by anti-dumping (AD) actions, and while the most effective way to improve AD disciplines is at the regional level, existing research does not deal with how a country can modify AD regimes through its regional trade agreements (RTAs). This paper seeks to fill in this gap by examining opportunities for China’s RTAs. It begins by highlighting the severity of China’s AD problems, notes the high concentration of AD actions taken by the top four and top eight AD initiators against China, and argues that AD issues should be given more weight in China’s RTA strategies.
