US uneasy about (rice) trade with Turkey
April 4th, 2006
The "National Trade Estimate Report on Foreign Trade Barriers," drawn up by the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative and analyzing the practices of the United States' trading partners, seems to be a key instrument reflecting Washington's uneasiness with Ankara on overall bilateral relations, considered to be unstable since the U.S.-led invasion of neighboring Iraq, according to Turkish Daily News.

The report by the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative shows that there have been many problems and highlights U.S. firms' trade complaints about Turkey, such as import licenses, duties and even corruption.

“Corruption is perceived to be a major problem in Turkey by private enterprise and the public at large, particularly in government procurement. The judicial system is also perceived to be susceptible to external influence and to be biased against outsiders to some degree. … American companies operating in Turkey have complained about contributions to the community solicited, with varying degrees of pressure, by municipal or local authorities,” the report said.
Most recently, the annual American-Turkish Council (ATC) conference held in Washington late last month offered an opportunity for face-to-face evaluation of bilateral relations. However, investment and trade issues took a back seat to defense and foreign policy issues.

Also last month the World Trade Organization (WTO) said an independent WTO panel would formally settle a row between the United States and Turkey over Turkish restrictions on rice imports.

The case was automatically handed over to a panel set up by the WTO Disputes Settlement Body (DSB) after talks between the two countries failed to resolve the dispute, the Geneva-based trade watchdog said in a statement.
