    Introduction to the EU Trade Defence Instruments

    The most frequent reason for the use of anti-dumping measures is to counter "unfair competition" and to create "a level playing field" in the international trade. Aspects of competition are, however, not considered in anti-dumping investigations. Anti-dumping measures are mainly benefiting third country exporters not facing anti-dumping duties, more than the EU producers that have requested protection. In addition, the protection comes at a high cost. Each 1 euro gained by the protected EU industry implies an extra cost of 4.5 euro for importers, user industry and consumers in the EU.

    The Union Interest Test in Trade Defence Investigations

    The EU's interest as a whole, i.e. the 'Union interest test', must be taken into consideration before imposing TDI measures. The Union interest test is often highlighted by the Commission in WTO negotiations, as well as in various negotiations on free trade agreements as a 'WTO plus' requirement that goes beyond the WTO rules. However, the test is insufficient and does not cover all aspects of the Union's interest. In fact, real-world implications when assessing the
    Union's interest are seldom mentioned. This needs to be improved in the modernisation review!

    The Lesser Duty Rule in Trade Defence Investigations

    According to EU trade defence regulations, the European Commission should apply a lesser duty than the dumping/subsidy margin, if this is sufficient to remove the injury caused to the EU industry. In the modernisation review of the trade defence instruments (TDI), the Commission proposes to limit the use of the lesser duty rule. This brief explains the weaknesses of the Commission's proposal.

    Global Value Chains and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership

    The changing nature of trade through a geographical fragmentation of production, often referred to as global value chains, is becoming common knowledge among trade policymakers. With the launch of negotiations on a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) it is natural to put insights related to the emergence of global value chains into practice in a trade negotiation of global significance. A global value chain perspective is the intuitive approach in any modern trade negotiation, but it becomes even more important when the world’s two largest and most advanced economies engage in a possible partnership.

    The Analogue Country Method in Anti-Dumping Investigations

    According to the EU anti-dumping regulation, the calculation of dumping for companies in a non-market economy should be based on values from an analogue country. In this brief, the National Board of Trade discusses some weaknesses with the current analogue country method, and suggests amendments on how the Regulation could be improved in order to address them.

    The Shipping Clause in Trade Defence Investigations

    Anti-dumping and anti-subsidy measures enter into force the day after they are publically announced. This makes it difficult for importers to plan their business activities, as months may pass between placing an order and customs clearance. This brief explains why the European Commission's proposal on the shipping clause, in certain ways, fails to solve the importers' situation and suggests how the proposal could be improved in order to address these weaknesses.

    Minecraft Brick by Brick

    A Case Study of a Global Services Value Chain

    Tjänsteproduktionen delas alltmer upp i olika moment och produceras i globala värdekedjor. I denna rapport presenteras det svenska dataspelet Minecraft och hur denna tjänst utgör en tjänstevärdekedja. Spelet produceras av Mojang i Stockholm och säljs digitalt över hela världen.

    Produktionen och försäljningen av Minecraft utgör en global tjänstevärdekedja där olika moment utförs i olika länder. Rapporten kartlägger denna värdekedja. Studien tittar även på övriga delar av den svenska dataspelsbranschen för att visa hur olika företag utformar sina tjänstevärdekedjor. Avslutningsvis diskuteras tjänstevärdekedjors inverkan på handelspolitiken.

    Global Value Chains and Services

    - An Introduction

    För att globala värdekedjor ska kunna etableras och fungera effektivt är stödjande tjänster nödvändiga. Även tjänsteproduktionen delas allt oftare upp i moment som utförs i olika länder och på så sätt skapas globala tjänstevärdekedjor.

    I rapporten kopplas diskussionen kring tjänsternas roll i globala värdekedjor till Kommerskollegiums tidigare arbete kring fenomenet tjänstifiering. Tjänstifiering innebär att varuproducerande företag köper, producerar, säljer och exporterar tjänster i allt högre grad. Att göra en gränsdragning mellan varu- och tjänsteproducerande företag blir därmed allt svårare. I den här rapporten diskuterar Kommerskollegium om de handelspolitiska slutsatserna i kollegiets tidigare studier kring tjänstifiering är relevanta även när vi tittar på tjänsternas roll i globala värdekedjor.
