New Zealand Launches Trade Dispute Against Canada

New Zealand has filed a trade dispute against Canada’s implementation of dairy tariff rate quotas, that sets how much dairy products are able to cross the border tariff-free.
The proceedings are being filed under the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), the first of its kind.
Trade Minister Damien O’Connor said on May 12 that New Zealand believes Canada’s quota to be inconsistent with its commitments outlined in the CPTPP.
“Our priority is to ensure that New Zealand exporters have meaningful access to the benefits negotiated under CPTPP, and that all parties fulfil the commitments they have made to each other under the agreement,” O’Connor said.
