This article revolves around the interaction between trade policy and competition policy, with a particular emphasis on the relationship between anti-dumping and predatory pricing rules. Accordingly, this article discusses the differences and similarities between the two policies, based on the varying objectives of these policy instruments, the measures used to enforce them, and the role that trade and competition policies currently play in the international trading system. In this regard, an in-depth analysis on the interaction of the two policies between the doctrine concerning domestic price discrimination (i.e., predatory pricing) and price discrimination in international trade (i.e., dumping) with a focus on the overlapping areas between these policies is reviewed in this article.
