Indonesia initiates dispute with US at WTO over paper products
On Friday, Indonesia formally requested consultations with the United States, the first step in the dispute resolution process at the World Trade Organization (WTO). Indonesia believes the United States' imposition of antidumping and countervailing duties on certain coated paper products from Indonesia violates the Antidumping Agreement, the Subsidies and Countervailing Measures Agreement and GATT 1994. If the parties are not able to reach a settlement of the matter within 60 days, Indonesia will be entitled to request the formation of a WTO dispute resolution panel.
