Tunis is in the process of filing a second complaint against Morocco at the WTO, concerning their disagreement on the conditions of export of Tunisian school notebooks to the Kingdom of Morocco. This is what the Tunisian Minister of Commerce said on 4 December, saying his country is determined to defend its interests.
In the same vein as its first complaint, filed on 5 July 2018 with the World Trade Organization (WTO) against Morocco, and concerning the litigation on school notebooks, Tunisia is about to file a second to challenge the anti-dumping tax that should be implemented shortly by the Moroccan government, with the aim of restricting Tunisian exports to the kingdom in this sector. This is what said Omar Behi, the Tunisian Minister of Commerce.
“We are determined to continue the process. The anti-dumping investigation against school notebooks should not be opened”, said the minister. “There was no dumping or damage on Moroccan industry”, he continued.
