Antidumping Duty

In international commerce, a tariff placed on an import that is unusually low-priced. Dumping is the act of exporting a good to a foreign country to capitalize on the price difference. Dumping can result in a handsome profit for the exporter, but it can also damage the importing country's local economy. Thus, many countries attempt to counteract the practice by implementing anti-dumping duties.
