Proposals to the WTO Rules to Address the Problems
This Chapter makes proposals to address the deficiencies in WTO rules that were addressed in Chap. 3. Three groups of proposals are put forth: (i) proposals relating to improving WTO trade remedies; (ii) proposals relating to improving WTO trade rules generally and (iii) proposals for adding competition rules to the WTO Agreement. At the outset, however, several general issues common to all proposals will be discussed. Lastly, a combination of the three types of rules will be examined with explanations of what different combinations would be necessary in order to solve all the problems. Most proposals draw inspiration either from the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement or the European Union rules. Some proposals are innovatory.
