This is an excellent article by Jones Day, which I missed when it was first published last December, well worth a look.
The WTO has played a pivotal role in international trade over the past 20 years.
Through the WTO, many companies have benefitted from market access around the world and have been able to enjoy non-discriminatory treatment.
Companies have relied on several instruments provided for under the WTO agreements, particularly trade defence instruments (eg, anti-dumping, anti-subsidy and safeguard measures), and have influenced the framing of laws and policies by reminding governments of their WTO obligations.
