India appeals WTO panel ruling on sugar subsidies

New Delhi.India has appealed against a ruling of the World Trade Organisation’s trade
dispute settlement panel on domestic sugar subsidies, stating that the panel
has committed “certain errors of law” in its report, the WTO said on Tuesday.
The appeal was led by India in the WTO’s Appellate Body, which is the
final authority on such trade disputes.”India has notifed the Dispute
Settlement Body of its decision to appeal the panel reports in the cases brought by Brazil, Australia and Guatemala in ‘India – Measures Concerning Sugar and Sugarcane,” the WTO said in a statement.

It said that given the ongoing lack of agreement among WTO members
regarding the flling of Appellate Body vacancies, there is no Appellate Body
division available at the current time to deal with the appeal. PTI
