WASHINGTON — A World Trade Organization dispute settlement panel has handed the U.S. its first textile rules victory and rejected a case brought by India challenging U.S. rules of origin.
“Today, the WTO announced that a dispute settlement panel ruled in favor of the U.S. on all counts,” said a U.S. trade official, speaking to reporters Friday on condition of anonymity. “This is the first time we have won a textile case in the WTO.”
