Throughout the industrialized world governments have been increasingly exercising responsibilities for full employment, economic growth, regional development and industrial organization in ways that could, or do already, impose obstacles to trade with other countries. Yet they are committed, through adherence to the GATT and participation in the OECD, and in Western Europe through their membership of either the European Community or EFTA, to the reduction or elimination of barriers to trade. And they are also committed to the avoidance of policies which have a similar distorting effect. In this last respect, the relevant provisions in the European Community are Articles 92 to 94 of the Treaty of Rome, dealing with government aids to industry.
