India is asking the U.S. to drop its plans for $450 million in retaliatory penalties for noncompliance on a 2015 World Trade Organization ruling regarding poultry imports.
Several years ago, the country banned U.S. poultry over concerns about avian influenza.
The U.S. argued to the WTO that America hadn’t had an outbreak of the highly pathogenic avian influenza since 2004, while India had 90 such outbreaks between 2004 and 2014.
The WTO has agreed with the U.S., however, India hasn’t reversed the ban, leading the U.S. to its decision to enforce $450 million in penalties.
On Tuesday, U.S. trade officials announced plans to file complaints against China for subsidies in the corn, wheat, and rice markets.
