Brazil EU WTO poultry panel inches closer
Brazilian government studying request to launch formal World Trade Organization action
Brazil has moved one step closer to opening a panel against the European Union at the World Trade Organization.
The Brazilian government’s foreign trade body, Camex, is examining a request from the Brazilian Chicken and Exporters Association (Ubabef) to raise new rules introduced by the EU in May this year. Ubabef says the rules are a case of economic protectionism.
