US escalates trade dispute with UK and Canada over Bombardier
Plans for further 80% duty on export of aircraft built by company that employs more than 4,000 people in Belfast
The US has escalated its trade dispute with Britain and Canada by announcing plans to slap a further 80% duty on the export of planes built by Bombardier which could keep them out of the market.
The move follows complaints by Boeing that Canadian-owned Bombardier, which employs more than 4,000 people in Belfast, had dumped its C Series jets at “absurdly low” prices.
