The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative has declined to make further revisions to the list of goods imported from European Union member countries that are subject to additional tariffs in a long-running aircraft subsidy dispute.
U.S. law provides for periodic revisions of this list in an effort to increase the effectiveness of the tariffs in addressing the underlying dispute. However, the last such revisions were effective Jan. 12 and USTR believes no additional changes are needed at this time.
A Reuters article reports that “officials from the EU and Britain are keen to work out a deal” with the U.S. to resolve the dispute but that “talks are on ice until Biden’s pick as top trade negotiator, Katherine Tai, is confirmed in her job by the U.S. Senate,” which “could take several more weeks.”
