AEM to Submit Comments Opposing Import Restrictions, Asks for Member Assistance

AEM intends to submit comments on behalf of equipment manufacturers affected by Argentinian import restrictions and is asking member companies for assistance.

The U.S. has requested establishment of a World Trade Organization (WTO) dispute settlement panel to consider trade infractions by Argentina that target imports. Argentina has continued to inhibit and slow the importation of U.S. goods in possible violation of the country’s obligations under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) and Agreement on Import Licensing Procedures.

The U.S. Trade Representative is seeking public comments on the issue. Member companies who have been affected by Argentinian import restrictions can help by contacting Alex Russ (, tel: 202-898- 9064) in AEM’s Washington, D.C., office no later than Wednesday, January 16, 2013.
