DAIRY FARMERS OF CANADA’S PRESIDENT OFFERED THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT ON THE CPTPP PANEL DECISION

Ottawa – David Wiens, President of Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC), today offered the following statement regarding the report of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) Dispute Settlement Panel:

Dairy Farmers of Canada is disappointed with the dispute panel’s ruling (pools) which found that two of the six elements challenged by New Zealand were inconsistent with the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). Nonetheless, the panel found that 4 of New Zealand’s claims were unfounded.

We now call on the federal government to do a thorough review of the measures the government of New Zealand has put in place to support its dairy sector to ensure that they are consistent with its international trade obligations.
