Canada – MEASURES CONCERNING TRADE IN COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT
Communication from brazil
The following communication, dated 18 February 2021, was received from the delegation of Brazil with the request that it be circulated to the Dispute Settlement Body (DSB).
With respect to the above-mentioned dispute for which a panel was established on 29 September 2017, Brazil hereby notifies its decision to withdraw its complaint. To this end, Brazil is requesting the panel to indefinitely suspend its work, pursuant to Article 12.12 of the Understanding on Rules and Procedures Governing the Settlement of Disputes.
Brazil maintains the view that the measures challenged in the above-mentioned dispute are inconsistent with several provisions of the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures, as set out in Brazil's request for the establishment of a panel (document WT/DS522/6). This notification is therefore without prejudice to Brazil's right to challenge those measures in future WTO dispute settlement proceedings.
Brazil asks that you circulate this notification to the DSB.
