Abstract

Dealing with NTMs as if dealing with a trade tool like tariffs is an unproper approach, as NTMs could play a role of check and balance for quality of goods. To improve NTMs, efforts should be packaged as part of government regulation reform. Two main areas to work on are transparency through collective and uniform data collection as well as setting up an institution for better coordination and more objective evaluation of NTMs.
