World Trade Organization to review Chinese ban on Taiwanese fruit imports

According to World Trade Organization Communications Officer Fernando Puchol, Taiwan’s specific trade concern regarding China’s suspension of Taiwanese fruit imports will be reviewed by the Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) Committee during its November meeting.

This is the first time that Taiwan has filed an specific trade concern (STC) on the Chinese ban of Taiwanese fruits. According to WTO rules, STCs are filed during SPS meetings when WTO members are unable to resolve issues after a period of negotiations.

In March 2021, China suspended Taiwan’s pineapple imports due to allegedly finding “multiple cases of pests,” while in September, China announced the suspension of Taiwan’s sugar apple and wax apple imports, citing the same reason. Though the Council of Agriculture (COA) demanded that China provide evidence to justify the ban, China never responded.
