“Trade Policy Reviews” analyse the trade policies and practices of each member of the WTO. The reviews consist of three parts: an independent report by the WTO Secretariat, a report by the government, and the concluding remarks by the Chair of the WTO’s Trade Policy Review Body. The opening section - “key trade facts” - provides a visual overview of the WTO member’s major exports/imports, main export destinations, origins for its imports and other key data. This edition looks into the trade practices of the United States.



Concluding Remarks by the Chairperson of The Trade Policy Review Body, H.E. Mr. Eduardo Muñoz Gómez at The Trade Policy Review of The United States 18 and 20 December 2012

At the conclusion of this eleventh Trade Policy Review of the United States I would like to thank Deputy USTR Ambassador Michael Punke and his delegation for their constructive engagement in this meeting. I would also like to thank Mr. Michael Stone, Permanent Representative of Hong Kong, China to the WTO for his intervention as the discussant. The Review was based on reports by the WTO Secretariat and the United States Government, both of which were appreciated by the delegates, although the Secretariat was asked to provide greater coverage of the services sector, a point which will be taken on-board for the 2014 Review.
