Consultations

Complaint by the United States.

On 10 January 2013, the United States requested consultations with Indonesia concerning certain measures it imposes on the importation of horticultural products, animals and animal products.

  • Article 4.2 of the Agreement on Agriculture; and

On 24 January 2013, Australia, Canada and the European Union requested to join the consultations.  Subsequently, Indonesia notified the DSB that it had accepted the requests of Australia, Canada and the European Union to join the consultations. On 14 March 2013, United States requested the establishment of a panel.  At its meeting on 26 March 2013, the DSB deferred the establishment of a panel.
