Over the past decades, many international trade developments have made it into the news. The high-profile nature of some of these cases has caused them to attract worldwide attention and coverage. Products as diverse as solar panels, aeroplanes and bananas; countries ranging from China to Ecuador to Tanzania; disputes being litigated in NAFTA, ASEAN and the WTO – all these aspects are components of the eclectic nature of international trade. Part of this broad spectrum is formed by trade remedies and this book aims to provide those dealing with international trade and customs with a horizontal overview of the use of trade remedies in multiple jurisdictions.
Each chapter provides a contemporary overview of the most relevant legislation and recent developments relating to the main trade defence instruments, such as anti‑dumping and subsidies. Each chapter will focus on a particular jurisdiction, including that of the WTO, and include discussions on particular trade investigations and disputes, the relevant legal frameworks and recent changes to trade regimes, the expected trends and upcoming changes and their effects within the world of international trade.
