Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Mexico has joined Canada in threatening to increase tariffs on goods imported from the U.S. over what it sees as Washington’s noncompliance with a World Trade Organization ruling against its meat country of origin labeling regulations. The two countries have indicated that they plan to ask the WTO to determine whether the recently revised rules are consistent with U.S. obligations and, if not, to authorize retaliatory measures. Canada released June 7 a list of U.S. goods that could be subject to such as-yet-unspecified measures, and the same day Mexico’s Economy Ministry said it could target products such as “fruits and vegetables, juices, meat, dairy products, machinery, furniture and home appliances, among others.”
