Glossary term:

Countervailing duties

Countervailing duties, also known as anti-subsidy duties, are import duties imposed under World Trade Organization (WTO) rules and aimed to neutralise the negative effects of subsidies. They are imposed after an investigation finds that a foreign country subsidises its exports, injuring domestic producers in the importing country.
