U.S. Agrees to End "Zeroing"

+ No hay comentarios
On February 6, U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk announced that the United States signed agreements with the European Union (EU) and Japan that will bring to an end longstanding disputes over "zeroing." Zeroing refers to a methodology employed in antidumping calculations for aggregating unfairly-traded ("dumped") transactions with other transactions. The World Trade Organization ruled against the United States in favor of the EU for the first time in 2006, and for Japan in 2007.

 Ambassador Kirk said in a statement: "What this means for the American people and the country as a whole is that American farmers and businesses can invest in job-creating export markets without the uncertainty of possible trade retaliation." Under the agreement, the United States will complete the process - which began in December 2010 - of ending the zeroing practices found in these disputes to be inconsistent with WTO rules. In return, the EU and Japan will drop their claims for trade retaliation.
