Unfair foreign pricing and government subsidies often distort the free flow of goods and can adversely affect your own country’s business in the global marketplace. When that happens, whether you live in the USA, a country of the European Union, or elsewhere in the world, your government can take enforcement actions to prevent unfair competition or “dumping.” By working with EXIM Partners ahead of time, you can be relatively safe from any such legal or monetary nightmares.


If you feel your USA-based business has suffered from unfairly priced or subsidized products, contact us for no-cost referrals to the appropriate federal and/or state agencies which can look into your company’s situation to determine if there is the possibility of enforcement action for anti-competitive importing or “dumping.”
