Brazil Unlikely to Approach WTO on Poultry

April 17, 2012

South Africa say Brazil are unlikely to approach WTO on poultry ban

South Africa doesn’t believe Brazil will approach the World Trade Organization about the African nation’s decision to impose higher tariffs on some poultry imports, Trade Minister Rob Davies said.

There is “no big crisis” with Brazil on poultry, Davies said today at a trade conference in Sun City, northwest of Johannesburg. “There has been a certain amount of exaggeration about whether this will go to the WTO or not,” Davies said.

Brazil’s poultry association said it would ask the government to approach the WTO about import charges South Africa imposed on the South American nation’s exports, it said in a Feb. 13 statement.

Import charges of 6 percent to 63 percent had been imposed on the poultry for six months, as initial information showed Brazilian producers were dumping products in South Africa and neighboring countries, Francois Dubbelman of Pretoria-based FC Dubbelman and Associates, which represents the South African Poultry Association, said in February.
