Question for written answer E-001840-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Tom Vandenkendelaere (PPE)

 Subject:  Antidumping measures imposed by South Africa on imports of frozen vegetables
 Answer in writing 

At the end of February, a South African company asked its government to impose anti-dumping measures on frozen vegetables (code 0710.90)(1). This particularly affects European companies, and it also infringes trade agreements. In addition, there is already a ban on imports of meat from boiling hens into South Africa. Both issues raise concerns about the trade policy of this trading partner.

Is the Commission aware of these two food issues, and what steps has it already taken or does it intend to take in order to keep trade flows as open as possible?
