急!!英文翻譯!!明天要交

Taiwan is considering requesting the WTO investigate and rule on an EU tariff on imported liquid-crystal-displays (LCDs) that Taiwan alleges is in contravention of the Information Technology Agreement (ITA), a high-ranking trade official said yesterday.

The EU has imposed a 14 percent import duty on LCDs of more than 19 inches, claiming that they are electric appliances. The US and Taiwan, on the other hand, insist that the LCDs are IT products covered by the ITA and should therefore enjoy “duty free” status.

US Trade Representative Susan Schwab has threatened publicly to bring the case to the WTO and the US also hopes that Taiwan, the world’s No. 1 LCD producer, will join the legal battle against the EU.

Taiwan’s LCD trade union also filed a complaint with the government that their exports are unjustly levied by the EU and asked for assistance.

John Deng, chief representative of the Office of Trade Negotiations under the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA), confirmed yesterday that Taiwan is conducting what he called “thorough and comprehensive evaluation” of the case.

The office does not rule out the possibility of triggering the trade dispute settlement mechanism of the WTO.

But the top trade negotiator stressed that they would be “careful” in the decision-making process, since the case could very well become Taiwan’s first trade litigation in the WTO and involves huge commercial and trade interests.

Official tallies show the EU collected as much as NT$19.6 billion in import duty from Taiwanese LCD exports, valued at NT$140 billion.

Deng also noted that LCDs are one of Taiwan’s most import IT products and said that “the government bears unavoidable responsibility to use all possible tools to protect our industry and trade interests.”

    台灣正考慮請求WTO世界貿易組織調查並裁定一項EU歐盟對進口LCD液晶螢幕(徵收)的關稅,台灣方面宣稱這項關稅違反了ITA資訊科技協定,一位高層貿易官員昨天表示。

    歐盟對19吋以上的LCD液晶螢幕課徵了14%的進口稅,聲稱它們屬於電器用品(家電產品)。而美國與台灣,相對來說,堅稱LCD液晶螢幕屬於IT資訊科技產品並適用於ITA資訊科技協定的「零關稅」待遇。

    美國貿易代表蘇珊史瓦布Susan Schwab揚言要將此案告上WTO世界貿易組織並期望台灣,世界最大LCD液晶螢幕產地,能加入對抗歐盟的法律行動。

    台灣LCD液晶螢幕產業工會也配合政府提出了他們的出口被歐盟不當徵稅的抗議,同時並尋求協助。

    MOEA經貿談判代表辦公室總談判代表鄧振中昨天證實,台灣正在對此案進行「全面分析評估」。

    (經貿談判代表)辦公室不排除啟動WTO世界貿易組織trade dispute settlement mechanism爭端解決機制的可能性。

    然而最高貿易代表(交涉者)強調他們對於決策過程會「非常謹慎」,因為此案極有可能成為台灣對WTO世界衛生組織提出的第一項訴訟,而且此案牽涉巨大的商業及貿易利益。

    官方數據統計顯示EU歐盟向台灣價值1400億的LCD液晶螢幕出口徵收了高達196億新台幣的進口稅。

    鄧振中也說明LCD液晶螢幕是台灣最重要的IT資訊科技產品之一,並表示「政府責無旁貸要運用各種可能工具,維護我們(台灣)的產業與貿易利益。」

    倒數第三段,改兩個字,還有改一個打字錯誤

    因為此案極有可能成為台灣「在」WTO世界"貿易"組織提「起」的第一項訴訟。

    (原本翻譯內容比較像是「告」WTO,故予以改過)

    (我腦中一直出現世界衛生組織,不斷打錯字,故予以改過)
