The Country Reports on Economic Policy and Trade Practices are prepared by the Department of State in accordance with section 2202 of the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988 (P.L. 100-418).
Modeled on the Department of State annual Country Reports on Human Rights Practices, the reports are intended to provide a single, comparative analysis of the economic policies and trade practices of countries with which the United States has significant economic or trade relationships. Because of the increasing importance in trade and economic issues, these reports are prepared to assist members of Congress in considering legislation in the areas of trade and economic policy.
