WTO ruling on Boeing "necessary, final step" in trade dispute
Following the publication of the WTO report on the Boeing dispute, a spokesperson for the SWA said:
“We welcome the publication of the World Trade Organisation’s decision on the countermeasures the EU can impose in respect of US subsidies to Boeing as a necessary, final step in the Airbus/Boeing litigation. We continue to urge all parties to the dispute to act quickly now to settle it, and remove tariffs on Scotch Whisky and other unrelated products. These are doing significant damage to our industry. Our losses are mounting and the situation is threatening businesses and jobs, just when the focus should be on the COVID recovery."
