Calls for trade overhauls and changes at the World Trade Organization will also be heard at the hearing. The EU has a trade agreement with Canada which will expire in September 2017 while Canada has no trade agreements and the US is reviewing the agreement.
Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland and other trade officials are due in London to brief lawmakers and witnesse바카라s on the current EU-US trade relationship.
The official WTO newswire reported that Canada is considering increasing tariffs and duties on imports from non-US countries.
According to a letter from Freeland to Trump, Canada was considering applying additional duties to about 12-15 percent of goods manufactured or sourced from Canada “in order to secure protection from any potential retaliation or cost-saving measures that may be triggered.”
The letter noted that these concerns were based on “current U.S. import requirements, including, for example, requirements for US-origin goods, US-manufactured goods, US-supplied goods and imports from countries of origSM 카지노in and transit.”
In fact, Freeland’s letter noted, there had been no increase in US duties in Canada since 2013 but that it was not unreasonable for it to do so.
Trump, on Thursday, told reporters at the Republican National C온라인 슬롯 머신 사이트onvention that he was confident the U.S. would maintain a “rigorous and free” trade relationship with the US.
