Report on barriers to trade and investment

During the last week, the EC has presented the Annual Report on Barriers to trade and investment; the document evaluate the progress made in eliminating barriers and identifies the measures taken by the EC to allow European firms to access global markets. Specifically, the 2013 report showed that progress has been made to remove those barriers with adverse effects on trade and which have created, for instance, problems for access to China’s markets (logistics industry), India (telecommunications products and electronic goods) and Brazil (exceptions to the Common External Tariff – CET).
Moreover, the paper points out that several barriers already identified in previous editions of the report still remain and that some EU strategic partners have adopted a series of restrictive trade measures, such as Japan (imported wood) and Russia (ban on imports of living pigs and pork products).
