Brazil wins partial victory at WTO in Indonesia chicken dispute

GENEVA, Oct 17 (Reuters) - Brazil won a partial victory at the World Trade Organization on Tuesday in a ruling on Indonesia's restrictions in the chicken trade, three years and one day since it launched the dispute.

Brazil scored several hits on Indonesia's trade rules, but it failed to win a key part of its case, which alleged that Indonesia effectively had a general "unwritten" prohibition on its chicken. Either country can appeal against the ruling.
