European Commission publishes evaluation study of EU trade defence instruments

The European Commission has published a study prepared by BKP Development which evaluates the EU's use of trade defence instruments (TDI) over the 2005 to 2010 period. The Commission considers that "the evaluation represents an invaluable contribution to a better understanding of the various effects of trade defence instruments" and expects that "the evaluation study will provide important input for the modernisation initiative" of the EU's TDI, which is about to be launched.
