As the UK leaves the European Union, it will need to develop its own independent trade policy that fits with a wider industrial strategy. This includes developing a system of trade remedies, the instruments that are used to combat market distortions (such as dumping and subsidised exports) that disrupt genuine free trade and that are economically devastating. A group of trade associations and trade unions representing manufacturing sectors has come together as we have a shared interest in shaping the UK’s new trade remedies system.
We have set out our viewpoint in a position statement for the General Election, The Future of Trade Remedies.
