Trade Enhancement Act


A resolution to reduce barriers to free trade and commerce.
Category: Free TradeStrength: StrongProposed by:
Mad Sheep Railgun
Description: The World
Assembly, resolved to strengthen the special bonds of friendship and
cooperation among our nations; contribute to the harmonious development
and expansion of world trade; provide a catalyst to broader
international cooperation; create an expanded and secure market for the
goods and services produced in our nations; reduce distortions to trade
and ensure a predictable commercial framework for business planning and
investment;




1.ENCOURAGES the free, fair and open trade/transfer of all goods,
services, raw materials, commodities and labor between member states
without prejudice;


2. ESTABLISHES the World Assembly Trade Commission (WATC) to arbitrate
any and all trade disputes which may arise concerning the
implementation of this legislation. Such arbitration may include, but
is not limited to, cases involving alleged price dumping by WA members
upon WA members, disputes over the interpretation of the terms and
conditions of this resolution, and any alleged violations by member
states;


3. AUTHORIZES the WATC to implement a process for the gradual
elimination of protectionist devices restricting the trade of all
goods, services, raw materials, commodities and labor not affected by
previous World Assembly legislation, including but not limited to
tariffs, duties, subsidies, subventions and quotas employed by WA
member nations.


- The process will be conducted through a series of meetings convened
by the WATC at its own discretion, but at least one per decade, with
the goal of eventual elimination of all protectionist devices employed
by WA member nations;


- Decisions arrived at by the WATC in the scheduled meetings are binding;



4. RECOGNIZES that certain domestic programs such as fuel subsidies,
government stipends and small business loans are not protectionist in
nature. Authorizes the WATC to review these programs and declare any
that are not in fact protectionist in nature to be outside the scope of
this resolution;


5. DECLARES that nations may apply reasonable restrictions on trade in the following cases:



- to ensure the stability of industries supplying essential products
(such as military equipment or other items vital to national security);

- in times of severe economic crisis, where such measures are required to ensure a stable supply of essential products;

- to collect revenue for the sole purposes of economic recovery following severe collapse;

- in other special circumstances, as determined by the WATC.



6. AFFIRMS the right of nations to impose regulations, including
embargoes, for cultural, safety, environmental, human rights, ethical
or other reasons, on goods and services and their manufacture, subject
to WATC approval;


7. EMPHASIZES that WA member nations reserve the right to employ
retaliatory tariffs towards non-WA nations to prevent price dumping and
authorizes the WATC to review and rule upon alleged cases of price
dumping by WA members upon WA members;


8. REQUIRES member governments to establish programs to alleviate the
possible impact of this resolution on workers and their families.
Examples of the services provided by such programs are job retraining,
help with relocation of displaced workers and training or assistance in
small business start-ups.
