智博彩票比分直播首页:VOA慢速:美国在世贸组织对欧盟等国发起诉讼 2018.07.19

The United States has launched five separate actions at the World Trade Organization Canada, China, the European Union, Mexico and Turkey. The U.S. says these countries wrongly placed tariffs on U.S. products.

The tariffs would involve a combined $28.5 billion worth of U.S. exports. They were ordered in reaction to U.S. tariffs announced in March. However, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer says the latest tariffs are illegal under WTO rules.

The Trump administration has said American national security interests justified tariffs it placed on imported aluminum and steel products. It said the tariffs are meant to protect the U.S. steel and aluminum industries from low-cost imports from other countries.

But the administration argues the tariffs put in place by the four countries and the EU are not permitted because they are not based on national security.

Under WTO rules, countries decide what their national security interests are. But the group also dissuades countries from overuse of that justification to avoid abuses.

Lighthizer said, “Instead of working with us to address a common problem, some of our trading partners have elected to respond with retaliatory tariffs designed to punish American workers, farmers and companies.”

What is the WTO?

The World Trade Organization describes itself as the “only global international organization dealing with trade between nations.”

There are trade agreements between countries or groups of countries that also set rules for international trade. These include the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA.

But WTO officials point out that these agreements are not designed to deal with big issues that affect many countries or individual industries across borders.

The WTO was established in 1995 following years of negotiations. The talks began at the end of World War Two and involved more than one hundred countries. The group has added more large economies in recent years including China in 2001, Vietnam in 2007 and Russia in 2012.

The body, which is based in Geneva, has a General Council that includes all its members. The Council carries out the business of negotiating, observing trade conditions and settling disputes among members in addition to other activities.

Below the General Council are many committees that specialize in the complex issues of trade in goods, services and intellectual property.

Decisions in the WTO are “generally made by consensus,” meaning all members must agree. And, all members have an equal vote.

The latest disputes over U.S. tariffs have set off measures and counter-measures by the countries including China, the EU and Canada.

Mexico is one of the countries the U.S. has included in its WTO dispute action. Mexico’s economy minister said the country would defend itself in the trade body against the latest U.S. actions.

The ministry said in a statement, “U.S. purchases of Mexican steel and aluminum do not represent a national security threat to that country.”

On Monday, the International Monetary Fund warned that growing trade conflicts could harm the world’s economic recovery.

The IMF continues to predict world economic growth will reach 3.9 percent in 2019. But it warned, “The risk of worse outcomes has increased.”

Maurice Obstfeld is the top economist for the IMF. He said the tariffs make the U.S. a target of trade actions if trade disputes continue to expand.

“The United States finds a relatively high share of its exports taxed in global markets in such a broader trade conflict,” he said.

I’m Mario Ritter.
