BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s commerce ministry said on Wednesday its safeguard measures on sugar imports are in line with World Trade Organisation rules, in response to Brazil’s opening of a consultation process at the trade body over Beijing’s management of imports.

Brazilian sugar exports to China plunged after China implemented steep anti-dumping duties on sugar imports from several countries last year.

The consultation is a procedure that allows countries to try to resolve an issue before eventually opening a formal panel.
