U.S. Threatens More Tariffs in Europe

The U.S. is threatening tariffs on an additional $4B in European imports such as coffee, meats, pasta, and olives.

 

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. is threatening tariffs on an additional $4 billion in European imports in a dispute over aircraft subsidies. 

The office of U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer on Monday put out a list of 89 products that could be subject to new tariffs. The list includes coffee, cheese, meats, pasta, certain metal products, olives, and whiskies.

The new list is in addition to a list released April 12, which had a trade value of $21 billion, Lightizer's office said.

Washington and the European Union have threatened tariffs against each other over government subsidies to U.S. aircraft maker Boeing and its European competitor Airbus.
