US the only country using honest trade policies : LUSENET : Grassroots Information Coordination Center (GICC) : One Thread


In a separate ``Super 301'' report, outlining more general trade priorities, the United States detailed a long list of other practices it was closely monitoring, including:

-- customs valuation practices in Brazil, Mexico and India;

-- burdensome automobile dealer protection laws in Central American and Caribbean countries;

-- restrictive auto policies in Japan and Korea;

-- onerous technical regulations in Mexico;

-- lack of transparency in regulatory rule-making in the EU;

-- EU subsidies for European plane maker Airbus;

-- agricultural practices in Canada, Australia and Japan;

-- telecommunications trade barriers in Taiwan and Mexico.

In a third report, Zoellick's office listed government procurement practices in the EU, Japan, Taiwan and Canada which it said were ``of significant concern to U.S. exporters.''
