Lesson 8: Trading Standards-----2013.11.28 suck..

热度 1已有 175 次阅读2013-11-28 10:19

Chickens slaughted in the United States, claim officials in Bussels, are not fit to grace European tables. No, say the Americans: our fowl are fine, we just simply clean them in a different way. These days, it is differences in national regulations, far more than tarrifs, that put sand in the wheels of trade between rich countries . It is not only(just)  farmers who are complaining. An electric razor which meets the European Union's safety standards has to(must) be approved by American testers before it can be sold in the United States, and an American-made dialysis mechine also needs the EU's okay before it hits the market in Europe
        As it happens, a razor that is safe in Europ could not(is unlikely to) electrocute the Americans. So, ask bussinesses on both sides of the Atlantic, why have two lots of tests which(where) one would do? Politicans agree, in principle, so Americans and the EU have been trying to reach a deal which would eliminate the need of (to)double-test many products.  They have been trying hard(hope) to finish it in time on the(for a ) trade summit between American and the EU on May 28th. Although the negotiators are optmistic, the details are complex enough to make them(that they may be) hard-pressed to get a deal at all.
        Why? One difficulty is to make(constuct the) agreements. The Americans would happily reach one accord on standards for medical dialysis(devices)and (then) hammer out different pacts covering, electronic mechaine (goods) and medical (drug) manufacturing. The EU-- following the fine continental traditions--wants agreements on general principles , which could be applied to many types of products, and even(perhaps) extended to other countries.
