Indonesia says WTO process against EU palm oil curb to start soon

Whole process is expected to last for 1.5 years

JAKARTA -- Indonesia said Tuesday it expects to begin a World Trade Organization process to resolve a dispute with the European Union over palm oil by the end of this month. 

Trade officials said they were finalizing the questions to be discussed with the EU, as part of the formal WTO dispute process, after the government lodged a lawsuit against the bloc last month. If a mutually agreed solution is not reached during the 60-day consultation phase, a panel will be set up by the WTO's Dispute Settlement Body to abjudicate.
