Posted on: November 12, 2014


“A record-breaking number of new trade concerns, mostly dealing with issues such as the protection of health and the environment, were raised by WTO members at the Technical Barriers to Trade Committee on 4-6 November 2014 — more than at any other meeting since 2009. For 2014, more new trade concerns have been raised than in any other year since the establishment of the WTO in 1995 and three-quarters of the concerns were expressed by developing countries.”
