With 2008 global economic crisis, anti-dumping measures as the most widely used alternative to the original tariff, continue to be favored by WTO members. Thus, for 16 consecutive years, China has become the first victim of the World Antidumping. As of 2010, China suffered from antidumping investigation sums to 804, of which 590 cases of the last antidumping measures against, and no doubt Chinese firms have caused tremendous damage. As low-cost competitive strategy, Products-Made-in-China continues to face antidumping investigation. Further integration of our export structure, it is not difficult to find a single, low-cost competitive strategy too much relying on the product’s problems, a solution which allows us to focus on products, and at last we have noticed value-added concept.In this paper firstly, we study the relationship of products value-added and firm export decision, to grasp the overall situation of Chinese firms products value-added, and research shows that firms with high value-added have chosen to export. Next, combined with China’s past antidumping cases, the descriptive statistical analysis and the product structure of Chinese exporters, we selected heterogeneous firms to research, and we found that, low value-added firms were in antidumping proceedings in the paper class products and rubber products firms, and high value-added firms were in anti-dumping proceedings in the chemical products and electrical products industry firms. On the basis of this conclusion, we use Difference-in-difference study the impact of antidumping against Chinese products. Through the fixed effects panel model, we found that foreign antidumping investigation to reduce the high-value-added firms value-added, and improve the low-value-added products value added, but gains from low value added firms smaller than loss from high value added firms. This paper is characteristic of heterogeneity theory, starting with research and analysis from the firm-level. At last, according to the results of this study, we made the government and business perspective opinions and suggestions.
