How You Can Prepare for Additional Tariffs on EU-Origin Goods
Webinar: 0.5 CCS Credits
In the last year the U.S. has imposed additional 25 percent tariffs on more than 150 products imported from European Union countries as well as an additional 15 percent tariff on new civil aircraft from France, Germany, Spain, and the United Kingdom. The U.S. has also initiated a Section 301 investigation of digital service taxes adopted or under consideration by the EU and a number of its member countries that could result in additional tariffs or other restrictions on imports from these countries if global consultations do not yield a successful resolution. This webinar will review these disputes and how your company can prepare for and mitigate the effects of these tariffs.
