The World Trade Organization released today, 10/11, the final report of the Implementation Panel initiated by the Brazilian government against Indonesian trade barriers to the import of chicken meat. As in the first panel on litigation, concluded in 2017, the result was largely favorable to Brazil.
. The Panel acknowledged the Indonesian government’s undue delay in conducting Brazil’s health certification process for the export of chicken meat to that country since 2009.
The final report of the Implementation Panel may be adopted by the WTO Dispute Settlement Body within 60 days. Brazil expects Indonesia to adjust its legislation and practices as soon as possible in order to definitively end litigation.
Brazil is the world’s largest exporter of chicken meat, with sales to 143 countries and production processes internationally recognized for its strict health and quality standards. Access to the Indonesian market, the fourth most populous country in the world, is part of the strategic objective of opening and consolidating new markets in Southeast Asia, a region in which the consumption of animal protein is growing at an accelerated rate.
