Brazil said it may renew chicken exports to Indonesia as early as 2018 after a World Trade Organization (WTO) panel issued a favorable ruling ruled on Tuesday (Oct 17) in a trade dispute between both nations. The WTO ruled that the Indonesia’s restrictions on such imports from the South American nation were unjustified, including delays in the approval of veterinary health certificates for chicken products from Brazil. The WTO said the panel’s decision should be adopted within 20 to 60 days, unless either of the parties appeals or its Dispute Settlement Body decides by consensus not to adopt it. Brazil’s annual chicken exports totaled US$6.8 billion last year, according to ABPA, with estimated exports to Indonesia potentially reaching US$70 million to US$100 million per year over the medium term.
