Canadian government thinks the dispute between Boeing and Bombardier is over
Ottawa - On March 23, the Canadian government stated that it was affirmative the US manufacturer Boeing decided not to appeal the decision canceling anti-dumping taxes on imports of Bombardier CSeries aircraft.
In late January, The US International Trade Commission (USITC) consistently rejected Boeing's request to impose 300% taxes and countervailing duties on every CSeries aircraft sold by Bombardier to the United States, arguing that the US manufacturer was not competing in the Bombardier's CSeries market segment.
The Government of Canada is pleased to hear that Boeing has chosen not to appeal the decision,said Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada.
The decision by the US aircraft manufacturer is a positive development in Canada's longstanding relationship with Boeing,she added.
It is great news for the Canadian aerospace industry and the thousands of employees in the sector on both sides of the border, according to the minister.
At the end of December, Justin Trudeau's government decided not to buy 18 Boeing Super Hornets for more than $5 billion to protest the American manufacturer's attitude in litigation with Bombardier.
