Europe addresses WTO. (Nonwovens News).

The European nonwovens industry has made its position clear on the next round of multilateral negotiations to the world trade organization. Led by EDANA, the European Disposables and Nonwovens Association, Brussels, Belgium, the industry is demanding a reduction, if not elimination, of customs duties that can no longer be justified in such countries as Canada, Argentina, Brazil and India, as well as a reform of the regulations governing the origin of goods, which date from a time when protectionist policy was the norm in the textile industry, and hamper the development of nonwovens trading between the European Union and other trade partners.
