United States Rules In Favor Of Boeing, Slaps Bombardier With Tax

A Bombardier Global 7000 aircraft mock up is shown in Toronto on Tuesday

If the ITC sides with Boeing, as it has so far, it could effectively keep USA airlines from using Bombardier's CSeries jet by imposing duties of almost 300 percent, one of the largest ever imposed for a market-based economy, Boeing said.

"The Commerce Department announced total duties of 292.21 percent - a final antidumping rate of 72.82 percent and a final countervailing duty rate of 212.39 percent - in a case brought by Chicago-based Boeing".

"This decision is based on a full and unbiased review of the facts in an open and transparent process", said secretary Ross.

Airbus, Boeing's European rival, reached a deal with Bombardier in October to purchase a 50.01 per cent stake in the C Series commercial jet and plans to build an assembly line in Alabama for American customers while maintaining the primary line in Mirabel, Que.

The legal battle began after US aircraft maker, Boeing registered a complaint against Bombardier, claiming that the company was selling its goods at a far lower price in the United Sates.

Canada's ambassador to the United States, David MacNaughton, warned that a positive finding of material harm to Boeing by the ITC could represent a possible violation of World Trade Organization agreements and prompt a more formal complaint with the global trade group.

"Boeing is using its meritless complaint as cover to close the United States market, which is one of the biggest in the world, to new entrants such as Bombardier's C Series aircraft", Turner said.

Trump Administration Bans CDC From Using 7 Words and Phrases
Additionally, any mention of climate change has been removed from the Environmental Protection Agency's website. The Washington Post reports the Trump administration asked the CDC not to use seven words.

The partnership with Airbus means there is "no chance Boeing will be harmed by imports", said Mike Nadolski, vice president of public affairs at Bombardier.

The Commerce Department's decision comes as the Trump Administration takes a hard line on trade practices it views as hurting American workers.

With the new judgement passed on Wednesday, the US made a decision to find in favor of Boeing.

"A single large order, like Bombardier's sale to Delta, takes years of demand out of the market".

The tariff will apply "regardless of whether they enter the United States fully or partially assembled", the Commerce Department says.

It includes a 79.82% tariff to offset a Commerce Department ruling that Bombardier engaged in price dumping, meaning it sold the CS100s to Delta below its fair market value by that amount. The case has been a sore point in U.S. Boeing suffered another setback last week when Delta announced it was ordering 100 Airbus planes to renew its narrow-body fleet in a move that analysts viewed as a snub of Boeing over the case.
