The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) will hold a public hearing on August 5, 2019 concerning the addition of a supplemental list of proposed tariffs against the European Union (EU). The tariffs are proposed in order to enforce U.S. rights in the World Trade Organization (WTO) dispute against the EU regarding their subsidies on large civil aircraft.
The additional list adds 89 tariff subheadings with an approximate trade value of $4 billion to the initial $21 billion list published on April 12, 2019. USTR is adding to the initial list with the supplemental list in response to public comments and additional analysis.
The due date for submission of requests to appear is July 24, 2019, with written comments due on August 5, 2019. The hearing is to take place at the U.S. International Trade Commission, 500 E Street SW, Washington, DC 20436.
