WTO: fish starring in the latest WTO's "World Trade Report" (2010)

Readers monitoring developments at the WTO would have noticed that the 2010 issue of the "World Trade Report.

There is a lot of talk on "fish" in the document.

The document also deals with measures by countries restricting exports of natural resources. The Report underlines the fact that these measures can have the effects of subsidies as they lower domestic price of the products concerned, which in turn makes the domestic (processing) industry using these products more competitive.

I found that recent post in the "International Economic Law and Policy Blog" (one of the blogs appearing in "My blog list") highlighted this issue when commenting on the WTO's Report.

Here is the link to the post:


And here the links to the WTO document and to an article by the ICTSD on Report.
