Question for written answer E-001284-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Tom Vandenkendelaere (PPE)

 Subject:  Colombia: anti-dumping measures on frozen fries
 Answer in writing 

On 27 February, the Commission sent a letter to the Colombian authorities asking them to reconsider their position on the anti-dumping measures against frozen fries from Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. The industry has been calling for effective action for some time, and more specifically for a case against Colombia to be submitted to the World Trade Organisation. However, the Commission prefers first of all to exhaust all the bilateral options, which may be a defensible position.

1. What deadline has the Commission set for itself as regards awaiting a response from the Colombian authorities?

2. Can the Commission confirm that it will not accept anything less than the lifting of these measures against European companies before it submits a case to the WTO?
