Tarifas da UE sobre jeans e bourbon prejudicariam os consumidores

Bruxelas, BE – On Friday, European Union Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker suggested to German media that the EU could draw up tariffs on American products such as Kentucky Bourbon, Harley Davidson motorcycles, and American dairy in response to U.S. President Donald Trump’s attempted tariffs on aluminum and steel.
Luca Bertoletti, European Affairs Manager for the Consumer Choice Center (CCC), said such a measure will actively hurt consumers in Europe, and engaging in a trade war won’t help the people it purports to help.
“Imposing retaliatory tariffs on signature American products like Kentucky Bourbon and Wisconsin Cheese would harm European consumers, and escalate tensions,” said Bertoletti.
“The US tariffs being passed on steel and aluminum are in violation of WTO rules, and can be successfully challenged. Engaging in targeted political tariffs of widely consumed products provides no gain to Europeans beyond sending a signal of antagonism to the US. Playing geopolitics with beloved products like Bourbon and Cheese will have no winners, but will certainly make European consumers the loser.”
