Trade war on biofuels again

I have earlier blogged about biofuels and WTO disputes here, here and here. Argentina formally filed a WTO dispute against the EU in DS 459 requesting for consultation against the EU. For those following the dispute across the Atlantic here is an update.
"Argentina notified the WTO Secretariat, on 15 May 2013, of a request for consultations with the European Union on measures imposed by the EU and/or its member states that affect the importation and marketing of biodiesel as well as measures supporting the biodiesel industry. 
Argentina refers to measures applied by the EU for the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources and the introduction of a mechanism to control and reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well as measures for their implementation at the level of the member states of the EU. It also refers to the establishment of support schemes for the biodiesel sector in the EU. 
According to Argentina, the measures violate, among other things, several provisions of GATT 1994 regarding non-discrimination, the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures, the Trade Related Investment Measures Agreement, and the Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade."
More biofuel disputes on the cards.

The sound is similar to rock, rock country in addition to the R& B.

This idea could in fact be cheaper since working with many people.
