Mexico in WTO complaint against Argentina

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Mexico has launched its first dispute against Argentina at the World Trade Organization, accusing it of protectionism, a move that follows similar complaints by the European Union, United States and Japan.

The Mexican complaint, announced by the WTO on Monday, centers on Argentina's import licensing rules, which critics say amount to a blanket restriction on imports.

The measures are among several policies adopted by the government of President Cristina Fernandez that have prompted accusations of protectionism against Argentina.
