The Argentinean government’s intentions to strengthen national industries and stabilise its current accounts have led to irresponsible trade and investment policies. Various forms of import restrictions are lined up and international investment rules are ignored by the Argentinean government.
The EU might be tempted to retaliate with protective measures. However, although the EU should not turn a blind eye to Argentina’s disrespect for international rules, a tit-for-tat response is unlikely to persuade Argentina to change its policies.
ECIPE invites you to an afternoon seminar where Fredrik Erixon, Director at ECIPE, and Lisa Brandt, Trade Policy Analyst, will present their new Policy Brief and discuss possible legal and diplomatic responses to Argentina’s current trade and investment policies.
