Airbus versus Boeing,
EU versus US
Brussels, December, 15 2004
After a visit to Airbus, in Toulouse,
EU Trade Commissioner Peter Mandelson announced new talks between the
EU and the US were due early January in an effort to settle the ongoing
dispute with Boeing.
At a recent meeting in Paris with US
Trade Representative Robert Zoellick, the two super-power
representatives discussed how to resolve anti-dumping and tarrifs
issues dividing them. Mandelson described the talks as "a very good
exchange of positions" adding "and if I had any doubt as to where Bob
is coming from ... I think those doubts were cleared up".
He described his US counterpart's position as "very strong".
"Clearly if we are going to avoid litigation and the pursuit of the
cases that both of us have now entered, we're going to have to have
some pretty serious discussion about the alternative to that
litigation. That's a discussion that he and I will have in the next
couple of weeks." said Mandelson....
