Attorney Dan Ujczo Quoted in Wall Street Journal on NAFTA's Dispute Resolution Panel

July 31, 2017
Columbus Attorney Dan Ujczo is quoted in the article “NAFTA Contain Dispute-Resolution Panel – Update,” published by the Wall Street Journal.

The article discusses the latest comments from the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau regarding the dispute-resolution panel in the revised North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Under NAFTA, Chapter 19 provides a mechanism for exporters and importers subject to anti-dumping or countervailing duties by authorities in the U.S., Canada or Mexico to seek review from a binational panel. The U.S. is seeking to repeal the so-called Chapter 19 clause in the upcoming negotiations.

Mr. Ujczo said the Trump administration heard from some influential constituencies – most notably the U.S. lumber industry – about the need to scrap the dispute-settlement scheme. Mr. Ujczo said the U.S. Trade Representative has recommended the establishment of a new system to resolve trade disputes among NAFTA trade partners.
