Japan & USA file WTO dispute against Argentina
Aug '12
On 21 August 2012, Japan and the United States notified separately the World Trade Organization (WTO) Secretariat of a request for consultations with Argentina on alleged import restrictions caused by a system of non-automatic import licensing and other related measures.

According to both Japan and the United States, “these measures restrict imports of goods and discriminate between imported and domestic goods”.

The measures, according to both complainants, “do not appear to be related to the implementation of any measure justified under the WTO Agreement”.

The World Trade Organization (WTO) is a rules-based, member-driven organization — all decisions are made by the member governments, and the rules are the outcome of negotiations among members.
