Prekės kelionė žiedinėje ekonomikoje
29-08-2022

Redakcijos žodis. Suderinta sistema, prekės vertė, prekės kilmė - tai tik kelios su muitine susijusios sritys, kuriose būtini pokyčiai pasauliui pereinant iš tiesinės į žiedinę ekonomiką. Tiesinėje ekonomikoje gamtos išteklius sunaudojame gamybai daiktų, kurie panaudoti virsta šiukšlėmis („imk – gamink – išmesk“ modelis). Žiedinėje ekonomikoje šiukšlių (atliekų) beveik nelieka, nes produktai projektuojami taip, kad juos būtų galima naudoti pakartotinai, taisyti, perdaryti, perdirbti. Tačiau tokios ekonomikos veikimui būtinas kitoks teisinis reguliavimas, pradedant nuo atliekų apibrėžimo (pakeičiant šią savoką į „išteklius“), reikalingi jų gabenimo, naudojimo, importo ir eksporto reglamentavimo pakeitimai ir suderinimas pasauliniu lygiu.

Resolving trade disputes beyond borders: the role of the WTO
21-08-2022

In international trade, the policies of the government of the trading partner such as the country of destination for exports may affect the business of a company. If a company conducting international trade believes that another member country of the World Trade Organization (WTO) is not complying with its obligations under a WTO Agreement and is creating trade barriers then what remedy is available under international trade law? Who can help a business entity in such a situation, which is beyond the jurisdiction of the home country? Is there any effective dispute resolution mechanism available under international trade law? How does it work? What are its strengths and weaknesses? What are the timelines for dispute resolution? How does it affect business environment? In this article these important aspects are explained for a better, certain, predictable, and fair international trading environment.

Mission possible: how the WTO Valuation Agreement strikes a balance between trade facilitation and customs regulation
17-07-2022

Customs valuation is one of the largest challenges in international trade. That is why the rules of customs valuation are set out in an international treaty. On the one hand, this is aimed at harmonizing the valuation rules, while on the other hand, it is aimed at protecting economic operators from the arbitrariness of the authorities and, ultimately, at helping traders. Does it really work in practice, and does it serve both public and private interests in international trade? In the article, the peculiarities of customs valuation are highlighted, which are especially important to consider for those who deal with developing and least-developed countries.
