Who saw Donald Trump coming? Not Simon Reisman, but maybe Ed Broadbent and John Turner 15.3.2018 - News for the rest of us
David J. Climenhaga Circa 1986, I recognized Simon Reisman one afternoon on a street in Toronto, just across Bloor Street from the Royal Ontario Museum. Reisman was the former senior civil servant who acted as chief negotiator for the Canadian side in the talks that would result in the so-called Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement. Those negotiations were initiated by Progressive Conservative prime minister Brian Mulroney, the well-known Irish baritone who has been so hard at work lately trying to polish up his tarnished reputation. Pretty boldly for a lad of 34, I stopped Reisman, introduced myself and expressed my skepticism about the still-uncompleted treaty, which was highly controversial at the time. Whatever the American negotiating team made of him, I was no match for Reisman's blarney skills.

US challenges Indian export subsidy schemes at WTO, says it can harm Americans 15.3.2018
Washington/New Delhi: The US has challenged Indian export subsidy schemes at the World Trade Organisation, saying these programmes harm American workers by creating an "uneven" playing field, officials said. The US Trade Representative (USTR) argued that at least half a dozen Indian programmes provide financial benefits to Indian exporters, which allow them to sell their goods more cheaply to the detriment of American workers and manufacturers. These programs are: the Merchandise Exports from India Scheme; Export Oriented Units Scheme and sector specific schemes, including Electronics Hardware Technology Parks Scheme, Special Economic Zones, Export Promotion Capital Goods Scheme and Duty Free Imports for Exporters Programme. "These export subsidy programmes harm American workers by creating an uneven playing field on which they must compete," said Lighthizer. "USTR will continue to hold our trading partners accountable by vigorously enforcing US rights under our trade agreements ...
