Brazilian footwear claims anti-dumping against Vietnam and Indonesia
According to Abicalçados, the Brazilian Footwear Industries Association (Abicalçados), anti-dumping is high on the agenda for 2021, with the renewal of the existing duty over Chinese products, and its expansion to Vietnam and Indonesia
In 2021, the Brazilian footwear industry is focused on the renewal and expansion of the anti-dumping duty, which is currently applied against footwear imported from China with the aim of "ensuring fair competition in the Brazilian domestic market".

The surcharge, currently at 10.22 US dollars per pair imported from China, will expire in March 2021. In addition to the renewal of the measure, Abicalçados is asking for its extension to Vietnam and Indonesia, countries that "also use dumping to compete in their main markets, such as Brazil", the same source argues. The measure is seen, by Abicalçados, as fundamental to "guarantee fair competition in the Brazilian domestic market, even more so in view of the current scenario, in which Asian countries have already returned to pre-crisis production levels and, therefore, should increase their exports of highly subsidized products over the course of the year".
