Sem­i­nar on Harm­ful Prac­tices in In­ter­na­tional Trade

Muscat Daily - - BUSINESS -

The Min­istry of Com­merce and In­dus­try (MoCI) in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Public Es­tab­lish­ment for In­dus­trial Es­tates (PEIE) in Rusayl will or­gan­ise a two-day sem­i­nar on Harm­ful Prac­tices in In­ter­na­tional Trade on Septem­ber 25 at Knowl­edge Oa­sis Muscat.

An ex­pert from the World Trade Or­ga­ni­za­tion (WTO) will ex­plain in de­tail the WTO con­ven­tions on sub­sidy, dump­ing and the in­crease in im­ports as per the WTO con­ven­tions.

MoCI has urged fac­to­ries to take part in such pro­grams and sem­i­nars, es­pe­cially since the sul­tanate has rat­i­fied the GCC Com­mon Law on An­tidump­ing, Coun­ter­vail­ing Mea­sures and Safe­guards. When this law was en­forced by the GCC States, the GCC Tech­ni­cal Sec­re­tar­iat ini­ti­ated in­ves­ti­ga­tions in a num­ber of com­plaints filed by some Gulf fac­to­ries against im­ports from some for­eign coun­tries.

The fo­rum sem­i­nar will thus pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity for Omani fac­to­ries to get in­sight about the mea­sures re­lated to fil­ing com­plaints and how far the fac­to­ries can pro­tect their ex­ports to the for­eign mar­kets. The An­tiDump­ing Depart­ment at the Min­istry will cre­ate di­rect com­mu­ni­ca­tion chan­nel with the Omani fac­to­ries.
