Last week, ECIPE was invited at the WTO to speak on our work on local content requirements in BRICS countries. It was a great pleasure to be there, and the discussion I had with the WTO secretariat was a most interesting. See below for the slides.
Of note, this study takes a broader definition of LCRs into account in the sense that they can relate to public procurement, investments, business operations or market access. Yet in all cases they have a clear requirement for local content classifying them as an LCR.
