Some experts are questioning whether China’s investigation into Australia’s wine industry for allegedly violating anti-dumping rules is as it appears.

Associate Professor of Law at the University of Wollongong, Markus Wagner and his co-author and member of UNSW Law’s Herbet Smith Freehills CIBEL Centre, Dr Weihuan Zhou, believe the investigation could stem from one of two scenarios: tit-for-tat or geo economics.

However, it is still too early to tell which, if any, scenario is correct.

The investigation into Australian barley took around 18 months, and the current anti-dumping investigation is likely to take a smiliar amount of time
