Duties, GB obtains easing of US sanctions
Removed 25% customs duties on Scotch whiskey, cheese, cashmere and other goods
Thanks to Brexit, Great Britain is independently withdrawing from the controversy between the US and Europe on the issue of reciprocal duties originating from state aid granted years ago to Boeing and Airbus. The British government has announced an agreement with Joe Biden's US administration to end customs duties on British products, such as Scotch whiskey, imposed by Donald Trump in connection with the dispute between Airbus and Boeing.
According to British Foreign Trade Minister Liz Truss, this deal removes 25% of Washington's customs duties on Scotch whiskey, cheese, cashmere and other goods and provides a kind of 'cooling' in the dispute between the two aircraft manufacturers. Prime Minister Boris Johnson spoke of "fantastic news" as "from Scotch whiskey distilleries to Stilton (cheese) producers, the US move to suspend tariffs on some UK exports will benefit companies all over the world in UK".
