EU files subsidy complaint over 777X WA State tax breaks; we raised issue at the time
// Leeham News and Comment

The European Union has filed a complaint with the World Trade Organization over $8.7bn in tax breaks offered by Washington State to Boeing in exchange for locating the 777X assembly site and wing production plant in the state.

Reuters has this report.

We raised concerns at the time the breaks were offered that these were illegal. These were extensions of the state tax breaks provided in 2003 for the Boeing 787 program, which were ruled illegal in 2012 under a separate EU complaint to the WTO.

Our stories are here and here. Boeing recently issued a card talking about the tax breaks. This may be found here.

Reuters reported earlier that the 777X complaint might be filed.

Update, 1:00pm: Boeing provided this statement in response:

"The EU already failed to make these claims as part of the current proceedings.

"The EU's effort to again raise this issue is a mere diversion from the fact that European governments have provided, and continue to provide, massive amounts of illegal launch aid to Airbus for every airplane development program. It is an effort to further delay EU compliance with the WTO's 2011 ruling that launch aid is an illegal, market-distorting subsidy.

"The tax measures the EU challenges today are not market-distorting subsidies. They are available to all aerospace companies, including Airbus and its suppliers."

Audiencia al Sr. Thomas Enders, consejero delegado del Grupo Airbus, acompañado por D. Domingo Ureña Raso, presidente del Grupo Airbus en España

viernes, 19 de diciembre de 2014



Esta compañía multinacional tiene su origen en la fusión en el año 2000 de la española CASA, la francesa Aerospatiale Matra y la alemana DASA.

Su Majestad el Rey recibió en audiencia al consejero delegado del Grupo Airbus, Thomas Enders, que acudió al Palacio de La Zarzuela acompañado por el presidente de Airbus en España, Domingo Ureña.

El Grupo Airbus es una compañía multinacional, de origen europeo, líder en la industria aeronáutica, espacial y de defensa. Con sede en la localidad francesa de Toulouse, cuenta con filiales en Estados Unidos, China, Japón, India y Oriente Medio, y centros de repuestos en Hamburgo, Fráncfort, Washington, Beijing, Dubái y Singapur. Airbus cuenta además con centros de formación en Toulouse, Miami, Hamburgo, Bangalore y Beijing y más de 150 oficinas de servicio en todo el mundo. En total, Airbus proporciona empleo a 72.000 personas, de las cuales 55.000 trabajan en Airbus y 17.000 en sus filiales. En 2013, su volumen de negocio se elevó a 42.000 millones de euros.

A principio de 2014, en el marco de una reestructuración de sus diferentes ramas, el grupo EADS -fruto de la fusión en el año 2000 de la española CASA, la francesa Aerospatiale Matra y la alemana DASA- adoptó el nombre de su filial Airbus. En nuestro país, el Grupo Airbus cuenta con instalaciones en Getafe, Tres Cantos y Barajas (Madrid), San Pablo y Tablada (Sevilla), Puerto Real y El Puerto de Santa María (Cádiz) y Albacete.

En el ejercicio de 2013, el Grupo Airbus en España obtuvo unos ingresos de 5.000 millones de euros, lo que le convierte en el líder del sector aeroespacial y de defensa de España, al generar el 64% de los ingresos nacionales procedentes de este área económica. Asimismo, ha sido el punto de entrada clave de la industria a los programas aeroespaciales europeos. La innovación es una prioridad para Airbus Group en España, que dedica el 9,5% de la facturación a investigación y desarrollo.
