Industry leaders welcome anti-dumping measures


Industry has welcomed new Federal Government anti-dumping legislation designed to protect Australian businesses from the illegal dumping of goods on to the Australian market.

Australian Industry Group Chief Executive Heather Ridout says the Government measures introduced in Parliament last week are a clear step in the right direction.

“They will go some way to preserving the interests of Australian industry in an increasingly tough economic climate, Ms Ridout said.

"Industry will be closely watching the implementation of the new rules to judge whether they need further strengthening in the period ahead. Early indications that the Government will revisit the issue if necessary are most welcome.

"Industry looks forward to the pending appointment of a dedicated official to work directly with industry on these important matters and we hope this appointment will be made soon."

Ms Ridout says the new measures will help to create a stronger, more credible and transparent anti-dumping regime for Australia.
