Trade Remedies and Freeports

MTRA has submitted comments in response to the government consultation on freeports.  The comments related to questions 13 and 14 on the application of trade remedies in the context of freeports.  The consultation document stated the HMG position that “freeports should not undermine the effectiveness of the UK’s trade remedies system” and the MTRA comments highlighted potential issues in relation to different scenarios and the possibilities for circumvention.
