|We report this week on the looming expiry of European anti-dumping measures for hand pallet trucks.
It's interesting that in an environment of free trade agreements and increased international commerce, anti-dumping measures are actually on the rise, according to industry monitors.
Surprisingly, India has the most restrictions, followed by the European Union, USA and China.
China, the target of the measures in our report, is the world's most targeted country for anti-dumping measures, followed by South Korea and Taiwan.
