What Trump’s EU Trade Talks Mean for the Shoe Industry

USDA to provide $12bn to US farmers in response to tariffs

"We want free and open trade", said Eric Maupin of the American Soybean Association Executive Committee. "There was great warmth and feeling in the room - a breakthrough has been quickly made that nobody thought possible!"

Amid growing pressure on the USA president from business groups, lawmakers in his own party and their constituents, Malmstrom, the EU's top trade official, warned earlier on Wednesday that if the Trump administration does not back off the threat of auto tariffs, Europe will slap import taxes on US$20 billion in United States goods, primarily agricultural products.

According to Wall Street Journal, the key elements of the agreements reflect the offers developed by European Union officials two months ago in hopes that Trump would not introduce tariffs on steel and aluminum import from the EU.

"Juncker goes to the meeting aiming to compromise on Trump's auto tariff threat, although the FT pointed out that it may not be that easy to achieve tangible progress". Whether any actual concessions have been made or will be made, a freeze on the spiral of tariffs on both sides is good news.

The EU will also reduce barriers and increase trade of American soybeans. "Normally trade discussions take months or a year".

After crisis talks with European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker, Trump tweeted yesterday about a "very big day for free and fair trade".

Trump and his delegation exerted "massive pressure" during negotiations to move the European Union toward a further opening of its agriculture markets, Juncker said in an interview at the Brussels studio of German broadcaster ARD.

The EU is also looking to raise the temperature should Trump hit European auto manufacturers with 20% tariffs on €10bn of United States products or going for a lower tariff level on a longer list of €18bn of U.S. goods.

The official stressed on Thursday that Trump retained the power to implement tariffs on cars if needed and said there was no deadline for the completion of talks. In response, other nations have slapped retaliatory tariffs on a wide range of USA products.

GM is only the latest company to blame lower-than-expected profits on either the Trump administration's tariffs or on tariffs that other nations have imposed in response to the Trump administration's tariffs.

President Donald Trump claimed Thursday he has "opened" European markets for U.S. agricultural products, touting himself as a champion of skeptical American farmers.

"I'm glad. I think it's going to help defuse some of the concern out there, not only in farm country but in our economy generally", Portman said.

The economic relationship between the United States and Europe is the largest and most important in the world.
