USTR says it looks forward to resolving aircraft subsidies fight with EU

WASHINGTON (REUTERS) – The US Trade Representative’s office on Wednesday (Feb 10) said it looked forward to working with European allies to resolve a long-standing dispute over aircraft subsidies once President Joe Biden’s nominee for top trade negotiator is confirmed.
