Trump, trade and tariffs [What Think Tanks are thinking]

16-03-2018

US President, Donald Trump, has imposed tariffs on steel and aluminium imports, raising fears of a trade war with other countries. He has argued that the levies, of 25 % on steel and 10 % on aluminium, are needed to protect US national security. But many analysts and politicians believe that they are actually meant to protect domestic producers and meet Trump's pre-election promise to return manufacturing jobs to the US. The European Union is seeking an exemption from the tariffs, which has already ...

US President, Donald Trump, has imposed tariffs on steel and aluminium imports, raising fears of a trade war with other countries. He has argued that the levies, of 25 % on steel and 10 % on aluminium, are needed to protect US national security. But many analysts and politicians believe that they are actually meant to protect domestic producers and meet Trump's pre-election promise to return manufacturing jobs to the US. The European Union is seeking an exemption from the tariffs, which has already been granted, in principle, to Canada and Mexico. If this does not happen, the EU could respond in several ways, including by imposing its own tariffs on US products. This note offers links to a series of recent commentaries and reports from major international think tanks and research institutes in reaction to Trump's decision. More reports on international trade can be found in a previous edition of 'What Think Tanks are thinking' published in June 2017.

New US tariffs: Potential impact on the WTO

These tariffs will apply to all countries, except Canada and Mexico (and possibly also Australia). President Trump has expressed a willingness to discuss the measures with individual countries and make additional exceptions if US (security) concerns are addressed.

President Trump has expressed a willingness to discuss the measures with individual countries and make additional exceptions if US (security) concerns are addressed. The European Commission and other US trading partners have expressed their concern at the measures, fearing that they could lead to a wider trade dispute. The Trump administration's justification of the tariffs on national security grounds is also viewed as a threat to the multilateral trading system.

La libera circolazione delle merci

01-11-2017

La libera circolazione delle merci, la prima delle quattro libertà fondamentali del mercato interno, è garantita attraverso l'eliminazione dei dazi doganali e delle restrizioni quantitative e dal divieto di adottare misure di effetto equivalente. I principi di riconoscimento reciproco, l'eliminazione delle barriere fisiche e tecniche e la promozione della normalizzazione sono ulteriori elementi introdotti per continuare il completamento del mercato interno. L'adozione del nuovo quadro legislativo ...

La libera circolazione delle merci, la prima delle quattro libertà fondamentali del mercato interno, è garantita attraverso l'eliminazione dei dazi doganali e delle restrizioni quantitative e dal divieto di adottare misure di effetto equivalente. I principi di riconoscimento reciproco, l'eliminazione delle barriere fisiche e tecniche e la promozione della normalizzazione sono ulteriori elementi introdotti per continuare il completamento del mercato interno. L'adozione del nuovo quadro legislativo (NQL) nel 2008 ha rafforzato in modo rilevante la commercializzazione dei prodotti, la libera circolazione delle merci, il sistema di vigilanza del mercato dell'UE e il marchio CE. Inoltre, il principio del riconoscimento reciproco è stato consolidato e si applica a una vasta gamma di altri prodotti che non sono oggetto di armonizzazione a livello UE.

Establishing Free Zones for regional development

12-03-2013

Free Zones are geographic areas in which a governmental authority offers incentives, different from the host country's regular policies, to companies operating in the region. Given the nature of these incentives, designated zones are often said to function as "growth poles" for the region, or even beyond.
