US TRADE REPRESENTATIVE PROPOSES FORCED LABOUR PROVISIONS IN WTO FISHERIES SUBSIDIES NEGOTIATIONS

A post from Crowell Moring on 28 May advised that the USTR proposed that the WTO address forced labour on fishing vessels as part of an agreement on curbing harmful fisheries subsidies.  The proposed changes are detailed in the post, and include a prohibition on any subsidy to a vessel [or operator] engaged in illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing or fishing related activities in support of such fishing.
