Why we don’t support the Public Interest test

Metals New Zealand has made a submission on MBIE’s proposed Trade (Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Duties) Act 1988: Applying the Public Interest test.

We do not support the Public Interest test for a range of reasons outlined in our submission – but most significantly, it oversimplifies economic effects and does not measure down-stream effects on other industries and ultimately, consumers.

To support our submission, we engaged NZIER to provide an informed and independent response to the questions raised by MBIE.
