We represent a wide range of industrial products and services in trade negotiations, including sectors as diverse as manufacturing, telecommunications and Internet services, as well as professional services. Wiley, for example, referred to efforts to combat unfair business practices by soes and worked closely with the US government to integrate strong and enforceable SOE disciplines into future trade agreements. Facilitating trade: ST-R has developed provisions that would remove non-tariff barriers to free trade products by changing the chapters on access to tariffs and the market of any previous free trade agreement. Free trade agreements, trade and investment frameworks, bilateral investment agreements, World Trade Organization agreements and other trade and customs liberalization and cooperation agreements help open markets and reduce costs for businesses and consumers. For many years, the company has been closely involved in the negotiation, implementation and modernization of these agreements and has been working with public and private bodies throughout the negotiation process to achieve results that meet their needs. Wiley`s International Trade Practice actively advises clients in international negotiations. We represent U.S. companies and industries in critical trade negotiations, including the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the Multilateral Services Trade Agreement (TISA), the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and trade negotiations between the United States and the European Union on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). We also represent U.S. companies and industries in a large number of U.S.-China trade negotiations, including ongoing negotiations on a Bilateral Investment Agreement (ILO). We also advise our clients in future trade negotiations to address their views and concerns before new negotiations begin. In these and other trade negotiations, we present customer opinions and proposals on current or potential negotiations to trade decision makers such as the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) and the U.S. Department of Commerce, the Treasury, state and agriculture, as well as the White House and Congress.
We are directly involved in multilateral trade organizations such as the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and we also participate in informal “interested parties” that always appear in the context of the negotiations.
