EU: U.S. Still Subsidizing Boeing Despite WTO Ruling

Tue, 09/25/2012 - 1:18pm

GENEVA (AP) -- The European Union has rejected the U.S. government's claim that it is complying with a World Trade Organization ruling against illegal U.S. subsidies to aerospace giant Boeing Co.

The Geneva-based WTO says in a statement Tuesday that the EU has requested consultations with the United States in an ongoing dispute over state subsidies to Chicago-based Boeing and its European rival Airbus. It says the EU alleges the U.S. is continuing some subsidies.

On Monday, the U.S. trade office insisted Washington had complied with a March WTO ruling by stopping select payouts to Boeing through NASA and the Pentagon and by removing some beneficial tax and funding policies.

A WTO panel has also ruled that European governments provided $18 billion in subsidies to Airbus, although not all were deemed illegal.
