English is not my first language so sorry in advance!
please help me on this one I can't find a good answer, and until I have understood this one, I won't get the whole non-tariff barriers to trade thing.
so I've read a lot about duties being tariff barriers to trade.
but then I've read about the anti-dumping duties which are, despite being duties, non-tariff barriers to trade, and now I don't know why?
I'm hoping someone here could explain that to me.
Also, one question additionally, are duties based on personal preferences, e.g. political motivation, also non-tariff barriers to trade?
let's say I put a smaller duty on the product manufactured by a company that is owned by a "political partner".
the parameters here are political usefulness and thus not directly correlated with trade.
is that a non-tariff barrier to trade then?
hoping for answers, thanks!
