EPP Group calls for negotiated solution to EU-US trade dispute

Release Date: 10 October 2019
In early October, the World Trade Organisation ruled in favour of the US in relation to an EU-US Airbus state aid dispute.
Following that, the US Government announced €7 billion worth of tariffs on goods going into the US from the EU.
The EPP Group tabled an urgent debate on the issue during the mini plenary in Brussels on 9 October.
EPP Group Spokesman on Trade, Christophe Hansen, says that the ideal solution to the EU-US trade dispute is a negotiated one but, if the US does not return to the negotiating table, the EU will have to retaliate in the same manner.
