New U.S.-China trade dispute, this time it's about chicken

Staff writer ▼ | May 31, 2016
The Obama administration has asked the World Trade Organization to establish a dispute settlement panel to rule on U.S. claims that China is unfairly continuing anti-dumping duties on U.S. broiler chicken products.

Allegations   "China is unfairly continuing anti-dumping duties"
The U.S. Trade Representative's office said in a statement it made the request after consultations with Chinese officials on May 24 failed to resolve the dispute over the duties.

China first imposed the duties on chicken imports from the US in 2010 on grounds they were priced below fair market value and this was injuring Chinese producers. China revised the duties lower in 2014 after the WTO agreed with U.S. objections that the original duties violated WTO rules.
