Malmstrom: A reprisal list for the European Union as a Taramb customs tariff

Meanwhile, traders' attention shifted to tariffs after European Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom said on Wednesday that Brussels had a list of retaliatory tariffs ready to start if US President Donald Trump gave green light to punitive trade measures against European cars. In an interview with Der Spiegel published on Wednesday, Malmstrom insisted that the European automobile industry does not threaten the national security of the United States, where more than 400,000 jobs depend on it in the United States.

The Commissioner said that Brussels remains cautious when it comes to the trade dispute between Washington and Beijing. "As far as China is concerned, we see a lot of things in the same way as the United States," she said. "We are working closely with the United States and Japan in this regard, for example when it comes to monitoring Chinese investments better in our country." . Malmstrom noted, however, that the European Union does not resort to definitions "to confirm political objectives" such as Trump.

"We have often encountered problems with the United States, but in essence, the transatlantic friendship was unbreakable," she added. "We are still talking about a free trade agreement and the harmonization of industrial standards.
