22.請依下文回答第 22 題至第 25 題 India has rapidly grown from imposing its first anti-dumping measure in 1992 to becoming the largest user of anti-dumping measures in the past few years. While data suggest that the trigger was the removal of quantitative restrictions on imports, the continued reduction of import tariffs has played an important role in sustaining this high use of anti-dumping measures. As successive Indian governments pursue the policy of reducing peak tariff rates to about 5-10 percent, the trend of initiating a large number of anti-dumping investigations is likely to continue. While this may sound ominous, one of the strongest non-economic rationales for the continued popularity of anti-dumping measures is that it functions as an effective political tool for building support for global trade. The argument therefore is that anti-dumping promises a certain degree of protection to domestic players and thereby convinces them to accept greater, more wide-ranging, and beneficial, trade liberalization. The increased use of anti-dumping measures by the India government thus can be seen as an assurance that the increased free trade will be fair and that temporary relief would be provided to domestic players who are adversely affected.
