This paper investigates the impact of EU antidumping measures on the targeted country and non-targeted country. A three-country model is employed to examine the trade destruction, trade diversion, trade deflection and trade depression effects associated with the EU antidumping measures imposed on China and the US during the 1995–2005 period. The findings suggest that EU antidumping measures against China destroy Chinese exports to the EU and lead to an increase of Chinese exports to the US (trade deflection). Further, EU antidumping measures on US exports divert Chinese exports in the same products to the EU and lead to a reduction of Chinese exports in the same products to the US (trade depression).

The authors offer a theoretical substantiation of the hypothesis about the direct relationship between investment flows and import restrictions: after introduction of the quota, imposition or increase of the customs duty – the capital starts to inflow into the economy of this country. The major investors in this case are international companies, which view the country that applies protectionist policy instruments as a promising market which is worth of being fought for and participating in its redistribution. The theoretical substantiation of the hypothesis is supported with propositions about optimization of government’s activity in pursuing the protectionist policy, as well as with empirical findings from the history of international companies, including those on the territory of the Belarus Republic. The authors formulate the theoretical basics of the preventive blow which precedes the imposition of import restrictions. The sphere of hypothesis application is state management of economy.
