Korea’s Industry Minister Lee Chang-yang earlier this week said he was
considering filing a complaint with the World Trade Organization
against the act. Some 25 lawmakers in South Korea proposed a
resolution against it, urging the US not to “discriminate” against
foreign electric car and battery makers.
In my understanding, the Inflation Reduction Act is aimed towards diversifying the U.S. supply chain. If so, then it can be argued that this is done for national security. Then wouldn't South Korea's complaint be dismissed? What are the merits of Korea filling a complaint against the U.S. for the Inflation Reduction Act?
