Andean Community Subsidy PoliciesThe Andean Community has become very important in Latin America in the development of trade strategies and tariff policies as well with the protection of industrial property and the harmonization of customs. The Andean Community had passed a series of provisions for preventing or counteracting distortions in competition in the Subregion produced by dumping and subsidies, practices that restrict free competition, and others with a similar effect.
