Indonesia Files Dispute Against Pakistan Over Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Investigations on Paper Products to WTO
05 December 2013

On 27 November 2013, Indonesia notified WTO Secretariat for a request for consultations with Pakistan concerning antidumping and countervailing duty investigations on imports of certain paper products from Indonesia.

In its request for consultations, Indonesia alleges that as of 27 November 2013 Pakistan has been in violation of the 18-month limit set in the WTO Agreements on Antidumping and Subsidies and Countervailing Measures because it had not yet closed the investigations that started in 10 and 23 November 2011 on antidumping and countervailing duty investigations on imports of writing and printing paper from Indonesia, which are suspended by its domestic courts. Currently, the decision of the Islamabad High Court to suspend the antidumping investigation is under appeal.

This is the first case brought by Indonesia against Pakistan.
