State Promotion for Regional Products

A Legal Analysis


Having said all of this, state advertising for regional products is allowed by world trade law in a comparable extent as from the EC law. Merely in a three-way regard do the system of laws take different paths: First, the EC law offers a broader selection of justification possibilities than the world trade law system, so that the promotion of weekly- and farmers- markets or of trade fairs and exhibitions on a EC level are easier to justify than on the international trade law level. However, this difference is in practice already for this reason irrelevant, because such actions are much too insignificant to the current prohibition on import; for this reason WTO-Members do not pay attention to them (de minimus non curat lex).
