Reports, analyses and information relating to the trade dispute brought by the European Union (EU) to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) against Colombia over anti-dumping measures imposed by the country on frozen fries from Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.
The European Commission announced on 15 November 2019 it was launching the first step of the dispute settlement in the framework of the World Trade Organisation, which consists of a 60-day long consultation. This period would allow both sides the opportunity to find a negotiated solution to the dispute. If the consultations did not result in a satisfactory solution, the EU would be able to request that the WTO set up a panel to rule on the issues raisd.
The EU claims that the challenged measures are inconsistent with numerous provisions of the Anti-Dumping Agreement and the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) 1994.
