Vietnam is not the main subject of India in trade remedy investigations. In fact, the total number of trade remedy investigations initiated by India against Vietnam only accounts for a small part, about 6% of the total number of cases initiated by India. In addition, the number of cases subject to trade remedy duties is only 4%.

Among trade remedy measures, anti-dumping is the measure that India uses the most on Vietnamese goods. India started using this instrument with Vietnam in 2007 with the anti-dumping investigation on Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL) imported from Vietnam. The Vietnamese products also subject to the most anti-dumping investigations by India are textiles and wood products.

 

Recently, India's anti-dumping investigation on Vietnamese goods has been on the rise, notably in 2019 and 2020, India conducted 4 anti-dumping investigations on Vietnamese exports. On January 21, 2022, India initiated an anti-dumping investigation on Vinyl tiles other than in roll or sheet form from Vietnam.
