U.S. trade nominee urges ‘robust monitoring’ of aircraft subsidy truce with EU

The United States must carry out “robust monitoring” of its five-year truce with the European Union in a 17-year battle over aircraft subsidies, Jayme White, President Joe Biden’s nominee to serve as deputy U.S. Trade Representative, said on Thursday.

White said in his confirmation hearing before the Senate Finance Committee that, if confirmed, he would also make clear that the United States would not hesitate to take countervailing measures against the EU if it did not comply.

“I think this is clear, the United States is not a shrinking violet in terms of taking countervailing measures against the EU if they’re not complying with the deal,” White said.
