Indonesia – Importation of Horticultural Products,
Animals and Animal Products

Request to Join Consultations

Communication from Canada

The following communication, dated 23 May 2014, from the delegation of Canada to the delegation of Indonesia, the delegation of the United States and to the Chairperson of the Dispute Settlement Body, is circulated in accordance with Article 4.11 of the DSU.

 

_______________

 

 

Pursuant to Article 4.11 of the Understanding on Rules and Procedures Governing the Settlement of Disputes (DSU), the Government of Canada hereby notifies its desire to join in the consultations requested by the United States pursuant to Articles 1 and 4 of the DSU, Article XXII of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994, Article 19 of the Agreement on Agriculture, Article 6 of the Agreement on Import Licensing Procedures and Articles 7 and 8 of the Agreement on Preshipment Inspection, concerning certain measures imposed by Indonesia on the importation of horticultural products, animals and animal products.

 

The relevant communication was circulated to WTO Members on May 15, 2014, as Indonesia – Importation of Horticultural Products, Animals and Animal Products (WT/DS478/1, G/L/1069, G/AG/GEN/119, G/LIC/D/48, G/PSI/D/4).

 

Canada has a substantial trade interest in these proceedings, as Indonesia is a priority export market for Canadian agricultural products. As many of these products could be subject to non-automatic import licensing and quotas in Indonesia, Canada is concerned that the measures at issue may restrict trade and, therefore, negatively affect Canadian exports to Indonesia.  Accordingly, Canada requests to join in these consultations.

A copy of this letter is being sent to the Chairman of the Dispute Settlement Body, with a request that it be circulated to Members.
