Washington, Ottawa clash in Bombardier trade fight

A Bombardier CS300 C Series aircraft manufactured by Bombardier Inc

Bellemare said in an interview that he is disappointed but not surprised by the U.S. Department of Commerce's decision Wednesday to impose duties of 292.21 per cent.

The decision follows the Commerce Department's preliminary recommendation of duties of that amount on Bombardier's C Series jets, earlier this autumn.

Canada vowed to fight the Commerce Department's determination.

Boeing called for action from United States authorities saying the C-Series competes with its small 737 jet, a point refuted by Bombardier.

Canada's ambassador to the United States, David MacNaughton, warned that a positive finding of material harm to Boeing by the ITC could represent a possible violation of World Trade Organization agreements and prompt a more formal complaint with the global trade group.

Boeing, which launched the petition over the sale of 75 CSeries aircraft to Delta Air Lines, says the decision validates its complaint.

Boeing, which launched the trade case in April, is arguing that Canadian and British governments are subsidizing the plane's cost, allowing Bombardier to sell into the USA market at unfairly low prices.

"Today the U.S. Department of Commerce reaffirmed the magnitude to which Bombardier has been subsidized by government funds and the extent to which it dumped C Series aircraft in the United States, selling those aircraft at prices millions below production cost in an illegal effort to grab market share in the U.S. single-aisle airplane market", the firm said in a statement. "This facility will provide USA airlines with a US -built plane thereby eliminating any possibility of harm due to imports".

She said it's also important to look at individuals once they enter the USA , and be aware of the associations and affiliations that they may have.

Bombardier calls Boeing's criticism unfounded, saying that the US company's entire case has been overtaken by events.

Delta is expected to wait for that new plant to open before taking delivery of their order.

Susan Fitzgerald, the Unite regional officer for Bombardier in NI said: "This decision poses a devastating risk for the Northern Ireland economy".

Bombardier said it turned over the Delta sales contract but can not accurately estimate the cost and price of those planes because they are being built and delivered in coming years.

USA and Mexican trade officials will meet next month in Canada to continue NAFTA talks.

Canada's government will review the final determinations to consider next steps and options for appeal, she said.

Bombardier plans to build the planes in Mobile, Alabama, where Airbus assembles narrow-body jets.
