Costa Rica Resumes Shipments of Tubular Bags to Dominican Republic
The first exports of polypropylene and fabric tubular bags entered the Dominican Republic after the WTO ordered the country to eliminate the safeguard measure imposed on imports from Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.
Thursday, May 17, 2012
From a press release from the Ministry of Foreign Trade of Costa Rica (Comex):
The report argues that tariffs on Central American imports imposed by the Dominican Central on tubular fabric and polypropylene bags, of up to 38%, are in violation of its rules.
By eliminating the tariff of 38%, conditions for the export of tubular fabric and polypropylene bags to the Dominican Republic return to normal.
The WTO has provisionally determined that the measures imposed by the Dominican Republic, charging tariffs of up to 38% on imports of certain products from the region, are inconsistent with its trade obligations.
A complaint by Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador over tariffs on woven and polypropylene bags, has obtained a favorable ruling.
