Additional Tariffs on EU Products

On Thursday evening, October 17th, it was confirmed that the tariffs on $7.5 billion of European goods will take effect today, October 18th. On October 2, 2019 the USTR published a list of the E.U. products that will be subject to the additional duties. Air crafts produced in the EU will now have an additional 10% tariff. Other products ranging from whisky to cheese will have an additional 25% tariff.

These tariffs came as a response to the preferential treatment by the EU for aircraft maker Airbus SA. The application of these additional tariffs will depend on the tariff provision and country of origin.
