Japan & the US file separate disputes against Argentina on import licensing

Today, 21 August 2012, Japan and the US notified separately the WTO Secretariat of a request for consultations with Argentina on alleged import restrictions caused by a system of non-automatic import licensing and other related measures. According to both Japan and the US, “these measures restrict imports of goods and discriminate between imported and domestic goods”. The measures, according to both complainants, “do not appear to be related to the implementation of any measure justified under the WTO Agreement”.
