EU to allow more imports of US beef


South Dakota Ag Connection - April 27, 2018

WASHINGTON, DC - The European Union is preparing to allow in more tariff-free U.S. beef in an attempt to avoid a full-blown trade war. This move comes in tandem with high-level diplomatic missions from French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel to Washington this week, as both leaders try to dissuade President Donald Trump from slapping tariffs on Europe's steel and aluminum producers on May 1, 2018, POLITICO Europe's Hans von der Burchard and Jakob Hanke report.

Trade-offs with Trump: An EU concession on beef could go a long way toward appeasing Trump, who has made clear that Europe has "unacceptable" barriers to trade.

"Our farmers can't send their product into the European Union as easily as they should. And we accept their products. So we have to make a change, and they understand that," Trump said during Macron's visit on Tuesday.

POLITICO reports that efforts to open up Brussels to more U.S. beef predate Trump's threat of steel and aluminum tariffs, but a senior EU official said that the prospect of an agricultural offer to Trump was "a very convenient coincidence of events."
