Ruling Due In Boeing Trade Spat; Trump At Davos: Investing Action Plan

Bombardier ruling due Friday amid spate of US protectionism

The result had been expected to go in favour of the United States aerospace giant.

It's "a great, nearly stunning victory for Bombardier, given some of the comments of the Trump administration and some other people, but it strikes me as a very sound decision", he told CBC News. However, Delta provided no update on its delivery schedule.

Workers in the North were said to be "jubilant".

But Richard Aboulafia of the Teal Group said he doesn't believe the ruling will unleash a torrent of orders because so few American airlines ordered the C Series even though it has been available to purchase for a decade.

TUC General Secretary Frances O'Grady said: "This is great news for thousands of Bombardier workers, as well as workers in their supply chain". The ITC consequently shot down the U.S. aerospace giant's pleas for 300% duties against Bombardier, a measure that received the backing of the U.S. Commerce Department last month.

The court rejected Boeing's claims that it suffered injury in the case. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he told President Trump in October that the proposed tariff was "not something that is warranted and something we look very negatively upon".

"This ruling is testament to the unwavering campaign by all, It will come as a huge relief to Bombardier and the thousands of workers and their families". "Integration planning is going well and we look forward to delivering the C Series to the USA market", the company said in a statement.

Boeing has claimed Bombardier sold each 108-133-seat CS100 for just $19.6 million, arguing they actually cost $33.2 million to make.

The ruling comes after Theresa May met USA president Donald Trump at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, on Thursday.

The decision was surprising, said Richard Aboulafia, vice president at Teal Group because it broke with the Commerce Department's recommendation for tariffs.

"They are the true market leaders", Conner said.

"It means the world's largest market for the C Series is wide open, where if it had gone the other way, it would have shut it down", he said. The case raised hackles in the well, with the government anxious about the potential fallout for a Bombardier factory in Northern Ireland.

The company called the ruling "a victory for innovation, competition, and the rule of law".

The aircraft has not taken conveyance of the C Series streams yet, so it had not been subjected to the levies.

"We are extremely proud of our employees, investors and suppliers, who have worked together to bring this remarkable aircraft to the market".

Bombardier says it will now move to finalize its partnership with Airbus SE.

Bombardier hailed the unanimous vote.

Bombardier's Belfast facility manufacturers the primary structural components of every CSeries wing using its patented resin transfer infusion process.

The dispute has stressed trade agreements between Canada and the United States. "Bombardier and its innovative workforce play a vital role in the Northern Ireland economy", she said.

Bombardier shares punched up almost 13 per cent to $3.46 in afternoon trading Friday on the Toronto Stock Exchange as some uncertainty lifted for the company.
