THE BUSINESS OF INTERNATIONAL TRADE
Saudi Arabia has requested WTO dispute consultations with the European Union regarding a provisional anti-dumping duty imposed by the EU on imports of mono-ethylene glycol from Saudi Arabia. The request was circulated to WTO members on 19 August 2021. Saudi Arabia claims that the challenged measure, imposed on 10 June, is inconsistent with provisions of the WTO’s Antidumping Agreement and the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994. Mono-ethylene glycol is a liquid used in the production of polyester fibres and film, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resins and engine coolants.
