GENEVA: The United Arab Emirates has launched a trade complaint at the World Trade Organisation to challenge Pakistan’s duties on biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) film, used in food packaging, a WTO filing showed on Monday.
The UAE said the anti-dumping duties, imposed on UAE, China, Oman and Saudi Arabia, from April 2015 and extended in December 2016, broke WTO rules. Pakistan has 60 days to settle the dispute, after which the UAE could ask the WTO to adjudicate.
Pakistan desired to hold meetings with Afghan officials but they were reluctant to consider the offer
