USTR Revises $7.5 Billion Award Implementation Against EU in Airbus Case

February 14, 2020

Washington, DC – Under President’s Trump leadership, the United States won the largest award in WTO history on October 2, 2019 when it was authorized to take countermeasures on $7.5 billion in goods after a victory in its unfair trade practices case against the European Union, France, Germany, Spain, and the United Kingdom.  Pursuant to U.S. statute, the United States Trade Representative is now issuing a Notice in the Federal Register making adjustments to its WTO-authorized retaliation action, which was implemented on October 18, 2019. The United States is increasing the additional duty rate imposed on aircraft imported from the EU to 15% from 10%, effective March 18, 2020, and making certain other minor modifications.
