Indonesia challenges EU over anti-dumping on biodiesel imports: WTO

Indonesia has followed Argentina in complaining to the World Trade Organisation that anti-dumping duties imposed by the European Union on biodiesel imports since May last year are in breach of global trading rules.

The WTO said on Wednesday Indonesia had asked for formal consultations with the EU on the issue, the first step towards the establishment of a dispute panel by the trade body.

Argentina, previously the world’s top biodiesel exporter, has already been through the early part of the WTO’s dispute procedure over the EU duties, and a panel on its case was set up in April.»
