Notes
ARGENTINA – WTO complaint: Argentina’s government has filed a formal complaint with the World Trade Organization (WTO) over the European Union’s decision to impose definitive anti-dumping duties on biodiesel imports from Argentina and Indonesia (see MPPU Nov. & Dec.’13). Allegedly, the EU’s calculations of the final anti-dumping duties were based on improper data. Should consultations to find a mutually a agreeable solution fail, Argentina may request that an independent panel of experts be established to look into the issue.
