The U.S. and the EU plan to agree on duties on steel and aluminum by the end of October

Reuters emphasizes that this topic was raised on October 12 at a meeting of the U.S. representative for trade negotiations Katherine Tai with the Vice-President of the European Commission and European Commissioner for Trade Valdis Dombrovskis.

The United States expects to reach an agreement with the European Union by the end of October to end the trade war on steel and aluminum. This was reported by Reuters, citing a source.

“We hope that by the end of the month, a corresponding agreement will be reached,” the agency’s source said. Reuters emphasizes that the topic of duties on steel and aluminum was raised on Tuesday at a meeting of the U.S. representative for trade negotiations Katherine Tai with the Vice-President of the European Commission and European Commissioner for Trade Valdis Dombrovskis.

In September, Dombrovskis, in an interview with Bloomberg, stressed that trade relations between the European Union and the United States under the administration of American President Joe Biden have improved compared to the times of Donald Trump’s presidency. As the deputy head of the EC noted at the time, the parties continued to resolve the dispute over steel and aluminum that arose after Washington imposed duties on their imports from the European Union in 2018 to protect the national industry. Brussels then introduced retaliatory tariff measures against some goods from the United States.
