WTO to set up dispute panels over Indonesia’s export prohibition on nickel ore, US origin marking requirements for Hong Kong goods

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.
