Body to tackle un­fair trade

The Star Early Edition - - INTERNATIONAL -

BRI­TAIN plans to cre­ate a new body to in­ves­ti­gate and tackle in­ci­dents of un­fair trade, such as dump­ing, when it leaves the EU, ac­cord­ing to a de­tails of a job ad­vert on a gov­ern­ment web­site. Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May has said Bri­tain will leave the EU’s cus­toms union when it leaves the bloc, in or­der to pur­sue its own trade agree­ments with coun­tries around the world. Bri­tain’s trade pol­icy is cur­rently han­dled through the EU. “We need to de­velop the UK’s ap­proach to tack­ling al­le­ga­tions of un­fair com­pe­ti­tion and build the ca­pa­bil­ity and ca­pac­ity to in­ves­ti­gate com­plaints and en­force the rules,” the gov­ern­ment said in an ad­vert for a “dig­i­tal de­sign lead”. The “UK Trade Reme­dies Or­gan­i­sa­tion”, with about 130 staff, would be part of the Depart­ment for In­ter­na­tional Trade. – Reuters
