US threatens new tariffs on EU goods worth $4 bn

Washington, July 4 (TIWN) The US government has proposed punitive tariffs on EU goods worth $4 billion, intensifying its trade fight with the European Union over aircraft subsidies.

The US trade representative’s office released a list of 89 additional items – including olives, Italian and Dutch cheese, Scotch whisky, Irish whiskey, pasta, coffee and ham – that could face tariffs. These join products worth $21bn that were announced as potential targets for tariffs in April, which included roquefort cheese, wine, champagne, olive oil and seafood such as oysters. The latest list also includes a number of copper products and other metals.  The move came days after a truce was reached in the trade war between the US and China.
