Indonesia starts WTO dispute against Pakistan over paper products
Geneva: Indonesia has launched a trade dispute against Pakistan over paper products, the World Trade Organization said on Wednesday.
Indonesia wants Pakistan to close down its investigations into imports of writing and printing paper, on which it could decide to levy punitive anti-dumping and anti-subsidy duties.
Although the investigations have been suspended by Pakistani courts, Indonesia says they have been open for longer than allowed under WTO rules. If the dispute is not settled within 60 days, Indonesia could ask the WTO to adjudicate.
