The EU and the WTO | Brussels, 1 December 2011

Statement on the EU compliance report in the WTO Airbus case, by EU Trade Spokesman John Clancy

"Today we have presented a comprehensive package of actions that achieves full compliance with the WTO recommendations and rulings in the Airbus case. Through this package we address all categories of subsidies, all forms of adverse effects, and all models of Airbus aircraft covered by the WTO rulings. What is now important is for everyone to realise that the United States will be in the same position as we are today after the WTO Appelate Body will rule on subsidies to Boeing early next year. At that point the EU expects to receive an equally solid set of compliance actions from the United States.", stated EU Trade Spokesman John Clancy
