澳大利亚加入WTO采购协定:


日内瓦消息人士周一称,澳大利亚已成为世界贸易组织(WTO)政府采购协定的第48个成员国,在该协定涵盖的1.7万亿美元采购总额的基础上再增加1000亿美元。


AUSTRALIA JOINS PROCUREMENT PACT AT WTO: Australia has become the 48th member of the World Trade Organization's Government Procurement Agreement, an addition that could add up to $100 billion to the current $1.7 trillion worth of procurement covered under the deal, a Geneva source said Monday.


《政府采购协定》号称是一项多边协议,意味着它可能对所有WTO成员国开放,但仅对那些加入的国家具有约束力。其目标是进一步向外国竞争开放政府采购市场,并使其更加透明。


The GPA is a so-called plurilateral deal, meaning it is potentially open to all WTO members but binding only for those who join. Its goal is to further open up government procurement markets to foreign competition and make them more transparent.


加拿大政府采购协定(GPA)委员会主席卡洛斯范德卢(Carlos Vanderloo)表示,澳大利亚的加入“增加了GPA的价值,增强了GPA的强度”。


Canada's Carlos Vanderloo, who chairs the GPA committee, said the addition of Australia "adds value to and strengthens the GPA."


向WTO 2.0迈进:在日内瓦的其他新闻中,白宫经济顾问委员会(Council of Economic Advisers)主席凯文.哈西特(Kevin Hassett)周三在华盛顿就特朗普政府正在考虑的全球贸易机构改革发表了讲话。到目前为止,有两种想法包括让成员国采取更“对称的行为”,以及探索可能惩罚贸易违规国家的方式。


Heading toward WTO 2.0: In other Geneva news, Kevin Hassett, the chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, spoke on Wednesday in Washington about reforms the Trump administration is considering for the global trading body. Two ideas so far include moving members toward more "symmetrical behavior" and exploring ways to potentially punish countries for trade transgressions.
