Australia to complain to WTO over China's tariffs


Australia will file a complaint with the World Trade Organisation (WTO) to launch a dispute resolution process with China over its imposition of anti-dumping duties on Australian wine, Australian Trade Minister Dan Tehan said.

"Australia will protect the interests of Australian wine producers by taking action at the World Trade Organisation over China's imposition of anti-dumping duties on Australian wine. The decision to begin the dispute resolution process was made after extensive consultation with Australian winemakers," Tehan said in a statement on the website of the agency he heads.

China imposed import duties on Australian wine to 212.1% in late November 2020. The duties were expected to hit Australian winemakers hard, who said they were looking for other markets. China remained Australia's largest trading partner and largest market for Australian wine exports.

Relations between China and Australia have recently deteriorated on a number of issues.
