Boeing European Union Karel De Gucht US government US subsidies US Trade Representative WTO ruling


Boeing has continued receiving subsidies from the US government, despite a World Trade Organisation (WTO) ruling against it says the European Union. The EU’s claim came after the US Trade Representative’s office said it had complied with a ruling by a WTO dispute panel that had found Boeing to have benefited from illegal payments. Karel De Gucht, EU trade commissioner said in a statement that the EU had expected that the US would have “finally complied in good faith with its international commitments and would have abided by the WTO rulings that clearly condemned US subsidies to Boeing”.
