EU decision to hike out-of-quota sugar exports is ‘obvious breach’ of WTO commitment
SAO PAULO, November 28, 2011 - “The EU cannot behave as if the marketing year is suddenly 15 and not 12 months long. This is an illegal move that will most likely be questioned at the next agricultural committee meeting of the World Trade Organization.” With that reaction, the Head of International Affairs at the Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association (UNICA), Geraldine Kutas, joined producer organizations from other parts of the world in condemning the EU’s decision, announced on November 24, to export an additional 700,000 tons of sugar out-of-quota as of December 1st.
