Plan to go to the WTO against the European Union has been shelved

For now at least the Brazilian government’s has shelved its plans to go to the World Trade Organization (WTO) against the European Union, against restrictions on Brazil’s beef imports imposed in 2007.

The stand-in Secretary of Agricultural Defense at the Ministry of Agriculture, Enio Marques Pereira, say the Brazilian proposal made to European health authorities in Brussels on November 22 was accepted and the deal is moving forward. With the new direction taken by the negotiations, the idea of going to the WTO has been set aside.

The Brazilian government had decided to question at the WTO the mandatory accreditation of each individual farm authorized to supply cattle for slaughter to sell beef to the EU, which came into force in 2007.
