WTO final ruling: Decisive victory for Europe
18 May 2011 - Statement
Airbus’ President and CEO Tom Enders provides the following first reaction to the report:
“This is a big win for Europe. We are pleased with the results. Congratulations to the EU for managing the case so successfully and winning on all key elements. It is good to see that the WTO has fully green lighted the public-private partnership instruments with France, Germany, Spain and the UK. We now can and will continue this kind of partnership on future development programs”.
Airbus Americas Chairman Alan McArtor addresses the World Trade Organization panel findings, which were published the week before this interview. McArtor explained that the WTO panel found launch aid is a legal and compliant instrument of financing between government and private industry, and that the United States’ complaint against A350 funding was dismissed.
