    Ottawa | The canadian government has deemed Friday as a positive element that the american manufacturer Boeing decides not to appeal the decision to annul the anti-dumping taxes on imports of Bombardier’s CSeries aircraft.

    To the minister of foreign Affairs asked by chrystia Freeland, the decision of an aircraft manufacturer is ” a positive development in the longstanding relationship between Canada and Boeing “.

    The american Commission of international trade (USITC) had unanimously late January denied the request of Boeing aircraft, the imposition of taxes and compensatory fees by 300% on each CSeries aircraft sold by Bombardier in the United States, by ruling that the u.s. company was not in competition on the market segment of the canadian manufacturer.

    “The government of Canada is pleased to learn that Boeing has chosen not to appeal the decision “, has welcomed asked by chrystia Freeland.

    “It is a great news for the canadian aerospace industry, ( … ), and for the thousands of employees of the sector on both sides of the border, according to the minister.

    “This puts an end to litigation in this folder “, according to Ms. Freeland, suggesting, in passing, that the manufacturer Boeing was due from the canadian government.

    After the decision of the american board of trade, the canadian government had allowed Boeing to participate in the tender for the replacement of its fleet of old fighter aircraft F18.

    At the end of December, the government of Justin Trudeau had decided not to buy 18 Super Hornets from Boeing for more than $ 5 billion in order to protest against the attitude of the american manufacturer in litigation with Bombardier.
