EU requests WTO consultations with U.S. on compliance in Boeing case

  • GENEVA, Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- The European Union has requested for consultations with the United States on the latter's implementation of rulings of the Dispute Settlement Body (DSB) on the Boeing case, the World Trade Organization (WTO) said Tuesday.

    The EU said it had reviewed U.S. measures to comply with the DSB rulings and considered that it maintained a series of subsidies.

    It said in its requests for consultations that the actions and events listed by the U.S. in its notification to the DSB on Sunday did not withdraw the subsidies or remove their adverse effects, according to the WTO.

    The EU requested WTO to establish a panel to probe into alleged U.S. subsidies of up to 19.1 billion U.S. dollars through tax and non-tax incentives by various municipalities to its largest aircraft maker Boeing on Jan. 20, 2006.

    The panel report over the case came out on March 31, 2011. Both of them later on decided to appeal to the appellate body, which released its final report on March 12 this year.

    The U.S. said at a DSB meeting on March 23 when the report was adopted that it intended to implement the recommendations and rulings in the Boeing case within six months.

    The DSB established a compliance panel on April 13 as requested by the U.S. to review the EU's implementation of rulings on the Airbus case.
