SAO PAULO (Reuters) – China’s Ministry of Commerce has formally accepted an offer made by Brazilian chicken exporters to resolve an anti-dumping dispute, a lawyer involved in the case said on Monday.

Claudia Marques, a partner at MPA Trade Law who represents the Brazilian exporters, told Reuters that China’s decision to accept the offer was communicated to the parties in the Ministry of Commerce’s so-called “disclosure report.” The agreement will take effect by Feb. 18, Marques said.
