The trade row between the E-U and the United States is in its full force as the European Commission says it will begin charging 25 percent import duties on a range of American products. The E-U formally adopted a law to put in place the duties on 3-point-two billion dollars worth of U-S goods including steel, aluminum and farm products from Friday. The move is in response to the U-S tariffs imposed on E-U metal exports. The U-S president hit the E-U, Canada and Mexico with 25 percent levies on steels and 10 percent on aluminum at the beginning of June. Mexico retaliated against the move two weeks ago while Canada said it would place tariffs on U-S exports from July the first.
