Antigua disappointed with US
2013-10-25 07:20:56 | (0 Comments)
Antiguan Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer has expressed his disappointment with the United States over its continued failure to reach an agreement to end their ongoing Internet gaming dispute.
The Antigua and Barbuda government has established a select committee to oversee the implementation process of the World Trade Organization (WTO) ruling, as the island seeks to suspend certain concessions and other obligations to the United States.
The seven-member ‘WTO Remedies Implementation Committee’ is responsible for directing the government’s plan to build the framework necessary to suspend selected US intellectual property rights to the tune of US$21 million per year.
Antigua and Barbuda has criticised the United States since 1998 of breaching its commitments to members of the WTO by enacting laws that prevented foreign-based operators from offering gambling and betting services to its citizens.
