The World Trade Organization (WTO) members on Monday agreed to a second request from the European Union for the establishment of a dispute panel regarding Indonesia’s export prohibition on nickel ore as well as domestic processing requirements for nickel ore and iron ore, a Geneva-based trade official said.
The official added that the WTO members also agreed to a second request from Hong Kong, China, for the establishment of a dispute panel to rule on US origin marking requirements for goods imported from Hong Kong.
The United States, according to the official, said it was still not in a position to agree to a proposal from 121 WTO members calling for the start of the selection process to fill vacancies on the Appellate Body.
