Complaint by Mexico.

On 1 July 1996, Mexico requested consultations with the United States regarding the anti-dumping investigation on fresh and chilled tomatoes imported from Mexico under Article 17.3 of the Anti-dumping Agreement. Violations of GATT Articles VI and X as well as Articles 2, 3, 5, 6 and 7.1 of the Anti-dumping Agreement are alleged. Mexico claims this to be a case of urgency, where the expedited procedures under Articles 4.8 and 4.9 of the DSU are applicable.



US Commerce Department official releases indicate that the case has been settled.
