The United States of America increases the custom’s clearance tax for the aircrafts imported from the European Union. On February 14, the government decided to increase the custom’s tax by 5% effective March 18.
The American President has made this bold decision as a consequence of the trade agreement signed with China. The restructuring of one trillion USD-worth trade relations might possibly initiate a large-scale trade war, significantly hindering the world economic development.
As a reminder: the international arbitrage authorized the USA to charge a 7.5 billion USD penalty on EU for continuing the Airbus company’s subsidizing.
