@SimonEvenett One reason: FTAs are most effective as signalling abt own future policy directions. Put a couple of banners in place, soon.

@SimonEvenett @research_trade Guess I’m out of date. Was it not CTS/IDB at one stage? Sure that’s what Friedrich told me (also in docs).

@TradeNewsCentre @SimonEvenett “Applied” duties may be lower b/c of preferences or other reasons e.g. by-law (they often are lower).

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to TradeNewsCentre

@TradeNewsCentre Seems to be just the math of “TPP module”. In the MacMap database “MFN” <- WTO-IDB/CTS & “Applied” <- customs pubs.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to TradeNewsCentre

That’s NOT what MacMap data shows. “Applied” ≠ (“MFN” minus preferences). These are data from different sources. twitter.com/TradeNewsCentr…

@StephenJacobi @snlester I’m optimistic. A big break like sometimes lifts trade+investmt energy; hard choices are, briefly, easier.
