German BDA, DIHK urged joint strong EU response to counter US steel tariffs

More responses on US steel tariffs.

German BDA employers group President Ingo Kramer said in a statement that “if the U.S. overrides international trade rules, then a strong, but above all, a joint strong EU response is required.”

DIHK President Eric Schweitzer said “everyone will lose out” from the U.S. decision. It was important to keep up dialogue. But he also emphasized that “if needed, countermeasures should be taken to strengthen the EU position.”

Germany’s steel industry association Wirtschaftsvereinigung Stahl criticized US  steel tariffs based on national security concerns is “grotesque”. And, “the U.S. measures are a protectionist intervention in international trade and run counter to the principles of the WTO”.
