The article asserts that antidumping duties directly affecting the petrochemical industry will become more common across Asia if the global economy takes a dip. John Fotiadis, director of the Trade and Antidumping Group at Tilleke & Gibbins International in Thailand, said a proliferation of free-trade agreements had allowed cheaper imports to flow between countries. This could damage local industries. Thailand is particularly vulnerable to cheaper plastic imports from China.
