    Definition
    Negotiations and preparation of laws and regulations on anti-dumping, subsidies, countervailing measures and safeguards; clarification and improvement of disciplines on unfair trade practices; support to investigating authorities.
    Description
    The WTO Agreements on Anti-Dumping, Subsidies and Countervailing Measures, and Safeguards impose very complex and highly technical obligations on Members and their implementation requires technical expertise and skills which are often not available in developing countries. An increasing number of countries, however, have identified the need for some form of contingent trade protection as a quid pro quo for comprehensive trade liberalization.
    Reference to WTO mandate
    (i) Agreement on Implementation of Article VI of the GATT 1994 (ii) Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures (iii) Agreement on Safeguards (iv) Doha Ministerial Declaration, par. 28
    Examples of typical activities
    (i) support to the establishment of national investigating authorities; (ii) assistance in preparing draft legislation on trade remedies; (iii) support to the participation in WTO rules negotiations aimed at clarifying and improving disciplines under the Agreements on Implementation of Article VI of the GATT 1994 and on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures.
