Storyline


The European Commission has pulled up a tariff list of U.S. imports worth about 20 billion euros (22.6 billion U.S. dollars) and will announce it to the public on Wednesday, diplomats from the European Union in the United States said Friday.

The move is in response to U.S. President Donald Trump's announcement on April 9 that the U.S. will impose tariffs on 11 billion U.S. dollars' worth of products from the EU, which ratcheted up a protracted bilateral dispute over aircraft subsidies.

The EU diplomats also said that the European Commission will discuss the list and make some adjustments afterwards.

Trump said on Twitter that the World Trade Organization has found that the EU subsidies to Airbus have adversely impacted the United States, and that the EU has taken advantage of the U.S. on trade for many years.

The Office of the United States Trade Representative said it is releasing for public comment a preliminary list of EU products to be covered by additional duties.

In line with the U.S. law, the preliminary list contains a number of products in the civil aviation sector, including Airbus aircraft, it added in the statement.

According to the list, the products that will potentially be subject to the additional tariffs also include commodities such as a variety of seafood, dairy products, processed fruits, wine, garments, among others.

The United States and the EU have locked themselves in a grueling dispute settlement process at the WTO since 2004, featuring tit-for-tat appeals and counter-appeals against each other.

As the United States accuses the EU of subsidizing Airbus and the EU challenges the United States for illegally aiding Boeing Co, both sides claimed partial victory along the way.
