Indonesia prepares for battle in Switzerland over RED and palm oil

February 23, 2020 |

In Switzerland, Indonesia and the EU met in Geneva last week for a WTO consultation over the revised Renewable Energy Directive (RED). The Palm Oil Monitor reports that the meeting is the culmination of a months-long public battle of words over the introduction of the measure and that the WTO consultations, are where the action will take a more substantive form.

“If the consultations don’t produce a result within 60 days, the Dispute Settlement Body will form a panel,” according to the Palm Oil Monitor. “Resolving the next steps in the case may take up to two years. If it requires going to the Appellate Body it could take even longer. Indonesia is sending at least three ministers and a raft of other experts to participate in the consultation.”
