Studies on International Trade Systems (Fiscal 2007)
The purpose of this project is to enhance understanding among the industrial circles on the trade issues that Japan is facing as well as the trade policies related to these trade issues. Accordingly, it focuses on topics that are evidently the most important for Japan, such as dispute settlement, competition laws/antitrust laws, and the WTO. IIST has supported this project since fiscal 2005 in line with IISTβs thrust and objectives.
