China requests consultations with the EU over poultry meat products

Yesterday, China notified the WTO Secretariat of their request for consultations with the EU regarding measures adopted by the EU to modify its tariff concessions on certain poultry meat products.

The request for consultations formally initiates a dispute in the WTO. Consultations give the parties an opportunity to discuss the matter and to find a satisfactory solution without proceeding further with litigation. After 60 days, if consultations have failed to resolve the dispute, the complainant may request adjudication by a panel.
