Canada may not face US punitive tariffs on steel and aluminum, pending a renegotiated NAFTA deal. But can the country really rely on that? DW asked the president of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, Perrin Beatty.
US President Donald Trump has announced higher tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Turkey. The move added pressure to that nation's already troubled economy and came amid a diplomatic row with Washington.
Canada is the latest country to retaliate against the Trump administration's steel and aluminum tariffs. The Canadian tariffs were designed to cause political pain for Republican-controlled states and districts.
The ministers agreed to eschew protectionism in favor of global trade. Germany hailed the talks' "breakthroughs for agricultural, the climate, and the consumer."
The leaders agreed to work toward "zero tariffs" between the US and the EU, which would decisively reverse the slew of trade tariffs imposed recently. The deal involves the EU purchasing natural gas from the US.
