This transatlantic EACC webinar is brought to you by the EACC Florida. Join us to find out how the duties below have impacted trade between the US and EU, how affected industries and companies are handling this and what impact these duties are having on trade into Florida and as a trade hub into Latin America.
In 2018, the US set import tariffs on steel and aluminum from China and the EU. In 2019, further tariffs were imposed on EU goods such as wine, cheese, motorcycles, luxury items. On July 16, 2020, in reaction to France’s plan to impose a Digital Service Tax on e-commerce companies, the United States Trade Representative threatened to impose additional duties of 25% as of January 2021 on products from France such as handbags, make-up and soap.
