Argentina Disputes S. African Poultry Import Tariffs

Mike Godfrey, Tax-News.com, New York

08 July 2013


Argentina's ongoing dispute with South Africa over poultry import tariffs was discussed by representatives of the Brazilian Poultry Union (UBABEF), the Latin American Poultry Association (ALA), and the Center for Business Poultry Processors (CEPA) in Buenos Aires recently.

CEPA complained to the International Trade Administration Commission (ITAC) about an application made by the South African Poultry Association (SAPA) to increase tariffs on imported frozen poultry meat. CEPA maintains that the application of the tariff hike to Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay is discriminatory and unfair.

SAPA applied to ITAC in March 2013 to increase the import tariff on frozen poultry to the maximum bound rate of 82 percent from the current 27 percent to protect local industry from lower priced imports.

South Africa is reportedly Argentina's third largest export market.
