Bombardier takes second hit from US

U.S. delays announcing second round of punishing duties on Bombardier CSeries

The US Chamber of Commerce has rejected an appeal against the huge tariffs it has imposed on Bombardier in favour of rival aerospace firm Boeing.

It also follows a complaint lodged by Boeing, which accused Bombardier of purposefully introducing C-Series aircraft into the USA market at "absurdly low prices".

"We will.do everything in our power to stand up for American companies and their workers", Ross said in a statement.

The 80 per cent duty comes on top of duties of almost 220 per cent Commerce announced last month.

Clark also pointed out that Boeing did not manufacture a competing aircraft in the CSeries category, and establishing any detriment to Boeing was seemingly "impossible".

Interestingly, the petition for the Commerce antidumping duty investigation was a preemptive move by Boeing Corp. against Canadian aircraft manufacturer Bombardier.

While we remain confident that this ruling will be overturned, if not in February when this preliminary ruling is reviewed, then by the World Trade Organisation in coming years, tariffs on this scale are created to maximise the financial pressure on Bombardier in the meantime by effectively closing the USA market to its flagship C-Series programme.

The Chicago-based aircraft giant said it welcomes the decision affirming its view that Bombardier sold the CSeries to Delta at prices below production cost to illegally grab market share in the single-aisle airplane market.

"Our government will continue to vigorously defend the interests of the Canadian aerospace industry and our aerospace workers against irresponsible and protectionist trade measures".

Russians said to have bought $100000 of election ads on Google
As the article notes, the company has previously downplayed its involvement in Russia's potential election interference. Snap, however, told Recode that it has searched its data and found no evidence of any Russian-bought ads.

Under worldwide rules, unfair subsidies from governments can take the form of grants, loans, equity injections, tax breaks and production contributions, if they give a company or an industry an unfair competitive advantage over foreign rivals. In order to actually go into effect, the proposed penalties need approval from the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC).

"We will look to the United States to ensure the process is rigorous and not politically influenced", he said.

"Boeing welcomes competition and Bombardier can sell its aircraft anywhere in the world".

A Bombardier union said it wasn't surprised by the new duty given the 48 per cent increase in the number of dumping allegations since the Trump administration took office. He is likely, as his International Trade Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne suggested last week, to send the "strong message" that "Boeing has not demonstrated to be a trusted partner" with Canada.

He said workers will fight even harder to get the duty reversed. "As we have explained repeatedly to the department, Bombardier can not provide the production costs for the Delta aircraft for a very simple reason; they have not yet been produced".

Bombardier has repeatedly stressed that Americans will be hurt by the tariffs because more than half the content on the 100- to 150-seat CSeries is sourced by US suppliers, including Pratt & Whitney engines.

Employees from Bombardier's Northern Ireland plant will fly to Westminster on Wednesday in order to urge MPs into action following the United States decision to slap a 220% trade tariff on the planemaker last month.

Champagne warned that "there will be consequences" - essentially repeating Trudeau's threat to cancel the planned purchase of the Super Hornets.
