Members have provided advice on various issues, including: market access, trade barriers, steel safeguard and steel prices, free trade agreements, the World Trade Organization (WTO) Doha Round of trade negotiations, other regional and bilateral trade agreements, Rules-of-Origin, and intellectual property rights.
