U.S. misses WTO deadline

The U.S. failed to issue a proposal to settle the dispute with Antigua and Barbuda over online gaming by deadline, but the process has been full of delays and missed deadlines.

That led to officials from the island states taking the same “wait and see” approach they have adopted throughout the negotiations.

The settlement proposal from the U.S. needs to address the country’s failure to comply with the World Trade Organization ruling of a $21 million sanction for denying access to online operators as well as additional claims for compensation from Antigua and Barbuda for allowing the U.S. to withdraw from its commitment under the WTO General Agreement on Trade and Services.
