PDF · Do Thanh Cong · Jul-5-2012 · 43 VAND. J. TRANSNAT'L L. 1235 (2010)

This Article explores the advantages that WTO membership brings to Vietnam in connection with antidumping disputes.  In particular, this Article examines the trade relationship between Vietnam and the United States, including disputes over catfish and shrimp, prior to Vietnam’s accession to the WTO.  The Article concludes that Vietnam’s WTO membership and experience with catfish and shrimp will serve exporters well when new trade disputes arise.  Vietnamese exporters will better understand their options and will be better equipped to defend themselves in antidumping disputes.
