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.

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.

Libera circulație a mărfurilor

01-11-2017

Libera circulație a mărfurilor, prima dintre cele patru libertăți fundamentale ale pieței interne, este garantată prin eliminarea taxelor vamale și a restricțiilor cantitative, precum și prin interzicerea măsurilor care au un efect echivalent. Principiul recunoașterii reciproce, eliminarea barierelor fizice și tehnice și promovarea standardizării au fost adăugate în vederea continuării finalizării pieței interne. Adoptarea noului cadru legislativ (NCL) în 2008 a consolidat în mod semnificativ normele ...

Adoptarea noului cadru legislativ (NCL) în 2008 a consolidat în mod semnificativ normele de comercializare a produselor, libera circulație a mărfurilor, sistemul de supraveghere a pieței UE și marcajul CE. Principiul recunoașterii reciproce a fost, de asemenea, consolidat și se aplică în prezent unei game largi de produse care nu fac obiectul armonizării la nivelul 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.
