WTO to hear EUs plan on treated beef
THE WORLD Trade Organisations (WTO) dispute settlement body will meet this week to hear how the European Union (EU) plans to implement WTO rulings against its ban on hormone-treated beef.
The EU is expected to insist on keeping the ban in place while a new
scientific study is undertaken to assess the risks. But the United States and
Canada want the ban lifted immediately.
