Ukraine initiates WTO dispute complaints against Hungary, Poland and Slovak Republic
Thursday, September 21, 2023
Ukraine has requested WTO dispute consultations with Hungary, Poland and the Slovak Republic regarding the continued imposition of import bans by the three countries on certain agricultural products, including grains, from Ukraine. The request was circulated to WTO members on 21 September. Ukraine claims the measures imposed by Hungary, Poland and the Slovak Republic appear to be inconsistent with various provisions under the WTO's General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994 and the Agreement on Agriculture. Further information is available in documents WT/DS619/1, WT/DS620/1 and WT/DS621/1. The goods at issue were: cereals, sugar, dried fodder, seeds, hops, flax and hemp, fruit and vegetables, processed fruit and vegetable products, wine, beef and veal, milk and milk products, pork, mutton and goat meat, eggs, poultry meat, ethyl alcohol of agricultural origin, bee products, and other products.Click here to connect to the source of this storyClick here for more News and Views
