Canada Requests WTO Consultations on US Paper Duty

Ottawa has asked the World Trade Organization for a review, by a binational panel under the North American Free Trade Agreement, into US countervailing duties of up to 20 per cent on almost $1 billion in annual exports of supercalendered paper from Canada.

Exports of supercalendered paper from Canada to the United States were valued at $959 million in 2014.
