Free Trade in Bikes?

Here’s an interesting link I picked up from the Word Car Free Network list. Apparently there is an effort to get bicycles and bicycle parts classified as “environmentally preferable products” for purposes of the World Trade Organization, so they can be imported and exported with out tariffs.

I’m not sure what that would mean for cycling here in the region (would Dutch bikes be cheaper here?), but it sounds like a good idea.
