WTO Appellate Body condemns Argentina’s import restrictions

AJOT | January 19, 2015 | International Trade

The WTO’s Appellate Body today confirmed the earlier panel’s findings: the various practices imposed by the Argentinean authorities on companies as a condition to import goods into the country are illegal under WTO law. Argentina should no longer require foreign firms to limit their imports, offset the value of imports with equivalent exports, invest in the country and keep their profits there, or use certain amount of Argentine content in their products. The WTO's Appellate Body also confirmed that Argentina should not require firms to secure an approval for their imports using the procedure known as the Advanced Sworn Import Declaration. Argentina should now renounce to its practices allowing European companies to resume normal business with their Argentine partners. Background Argentina introduced the measures as part of its so-called 'managed trade' policy. Its aim was to substitute imports for locally-sourced products and to reduce the country's foreign trade deficit. The measures have imposed a severe burden on importers of EU products into Argentina and impaired the capacity of foreign firms to operate in the country. Read More »
