G20 nations have imposed over 9,000 protectionist measures since 2008, according to a study by Global Trade Alert. The G20 leaders first gathered in that year, at which time they committed to resist protectionism; that commitment was abandoned at the most recent meeting. Global Trade Alert’s study looked at various trade-distorting measures, including anti-dumping actions, at which Australia leads the G20 in initiating. Global Trade Alert states the federal and state governments have implemented 50 trade-distorting measures in the first 10 months of 2018.
