As mentioned previously, it is encouraging that these tariffs will be suspended at a time when global freight is in such disruption and costs are increasing in supply chains. However NASA is still working with industry coalitions to lend support and urge both the US and EU to come to an agreement to permanently eliminate not only these retaliatory tariffs linked to the aircraft dispute, but also the EU retaliatory tariffs on American whiskey connected to the steel and aluminum trade policies.
