US takes Indonesia to WTO over plant and animal import rules

GENEVA, Jan 10 (Reuters) - The United States has filed a complaint at the World Trade Organisation challenging Indonesia's rules for imports of horticultural products, animal products and animals, the WTO said on Thursday.

The complaint says Indonesia's non-automatic import licences and quotas "have significant trade-restrictive effects on imports and are used to implement what appear to be WTO-inconsistent measures", a WTO statement said.
