countervailing duty



Additional import duty imposed to offset the effect of concessions and subsidies granted by an exporting country to its exporters. Imposition of a countervailing duty is an attempt to bring the imported price to its true market price, and thus provides a level playing field to the importing country's producers. See also anti-dumping duty.
