Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Effective July 14, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative has waived discriminatory purchasing requirements for eligible products and suppliers from Moldova, for which the World Trade Organization Agreement on Government Procurement entered into force on that date. Specifically, having determined that Moldova will provide appropriate reciprocal competitive government procurement opportunities to U.S. products and services and suppliers of such products and services, as of July 14 the U.S. has waived the application of any law, regulation, procedure or practice regarding government procurement that would, if applied to eligible products of Moldova (i.e., those goods and services covered under the GPA for procurement by the U.S.) and suppliers of such products, result in treatment less favorable than that accorded to (a) U.S. products and suppliers of such products or (b) eligible products of another foreign country or instrumentality that is a party to the GPA and suppliers of such products.
