Abstract

Assesses the application of World Trade Organisation (WTO) law to export restrictions on energy resources, metals and agricultural products, and considers whether preferential trade agreements are better equipped to prevent trade distortions from such restrictions on natural resource exports. Discusses the rationale of export restrictions and their negative consequences. Examines relevant WTO dispute settlement decisions as well as the ongoing proceedings in Re China (Measures Related to the Exportation of Various Raw Materials).
