EU, US working to settle aircraft dispute by July 11

Brussels: The European Union (EU) and the US are working to reach an agreement on their long-standing dispute on aircraft subsidies by the July 11 deadline, European Commission Executive Vice-President and trade chief Valdis Dombrovskis said.

Dombrovskis said at a press conference on Thursday that the deadline was "realistic" and that he was confident that an agreement will be reached, reports Xinhua news agency.

"We had intensive and broad discussions on this topic with US Trade Representative Katherine Tai last week and also during today's video conference she confirmed this timeline so we are working to reach this agreement by July 11," Dombrovskis said.

In 2004, the US accused France, Spain and Germany of providing illegal subsidies and grants to support the production of a range of Airbus products. In October 2019, the World Trade Organization (WTO) allowed Washington to take counter-measures against European exports worth up to $7.5 billion.

Both sides agreed in March to suspend tariffs imposed on billions of imports in their 16-year-old dispute at the WTO over subsidies for plane makers Airbus and Boeing. The suspension runs until July 10, with tariffs re-applying on July 11 if there is no solution.
