Gide's International Trade team has teamed up with the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, the UK's largest Chamber of Commerce, to deliver a webinar on a key topic for businesses operating in the UK, Trade Remedies: the new profit-boosting tool on the side of UK industry.
Trade remedies prevent injury to UK industries caused by unfair trading practices (e.g. dumping and foreign state subsidies) and unforeseen surges in imports. The measures secure greater profitability, as domestic industry regains its competitive advantage.
Launched on 1 June 2021, the new UK Trade Remedies Authority ("TRA") has become fully operational, conducting reviews and investigations across a variety of sectors. Trade remedies represent a practical, efficient and long-term solution for UK industry.
Webinar attendees will gain an understanding of how SMEs can benefit from the UK's new ability to implement anti-dumping, anti-subsidy and safeguarding measures.
The panel of Gide speakers will share their experience of the developing trade remedies regime in the UK and it will include experts from Brussels who have been helping clients (both from Europe and the UK) to benefit from trade remedies for over 30 years. Gide was one of the first firms to recognise the trade remedies opportunities presented by Brexit and build a presence on the UK market, actively engaging with the TRA during the development of the new regime.
