Britain will push for a steel and aluminum tariff deal with the United States

WASHINGTON, Dec. 8 (DASR) – British Trade Secretary Anne-Marie Trevelyn, who is in Washington on Wednesday, urged U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raymond to begin formal talks on finalizing US tariffs on steel and aluminum for Britain. Of the year. This was stated by a senior British official who did not want to be named.

In an interview with US Trade Representative Catherine Toy on Tuesday (December 7), Travelian said pressure was mounting in Britain to increase retaliatory taxes on whiskey and other American products, until the United States cuts taxes on British products quickly. Added an unnamed representative. Travelian is set to repeat the news at Wednesday’s meeting with Raymond.

Britain, which withdrew from the European Union (EU) last year, wants to join the US-EU agreement in October, which will allow tax-free entry into the United States with the initial steel for “limited quantities” of metals produced in the Union. 25% and 10% on aluminum will be on the basis of taxes.

From January 1, British companies will face more pressure to reduce tariffs on EU goods due to an agreement between the United States and the European Union. Following the agreement with Washington, the European Union lifted its retaliatory obligations against the United States.
