Honduras pressures Australia on tobacco packaging

Monday, September 16, 2013


Honduras has raised the pressure on Australia over its landmark plain packaging rules for tobacco by launching a full-blown dispute at the World Trade Organisation, WTO, the global body said.

The WTO said Honduras, one of four countries that say they oppose Australia's legislation on commercial grounds, had requested the formation of a dispute settlement panel to settle the issue.

It is the second time that Honduras has made such a request after its first attempt in November 2012 was blocked by Australia, a move allowed just once under WTO rules.
