US, UK reach truce in Airbus-Boeing trade dispute

Also in the show: Deliveroo picks London for its IPO, and Doctors Without Borders urges the WTO to waive patents on Covid-19 vaccines.

  • European wine, aircraft parts hit with new US tariffs in Airbus-Boeing dispute

    French & German wine, cognac and aircraft parts have been hit with new tariffs by the United States, as part of a long-running dispute with the European Union over subsidies to plane makers. The new tariffs are expanding on a list of products which have been subject to US import levies since 2019. The French wine exporters' association esimates the new tariffs will cost the sector €300 million in lost sales. Also today, dozens of major American companies have suspended political donations after last week's riot in Washington.

  • Breakthrough: UK and EU reach post-Brexit trade agreement

    Just a week before the deadline, Britain and the European Union struck a tentative free-trade deal Thursday that should avert economic chaos on New Year's and bring a measure of certainty for businesses after years of Brexit turmoil. Tense and often testy negotiations gradually whittled differences between the two sides down to three key issues: fair-competition rules, mechanisms for resolving future disputes, and fishing rights. The rights of EU boats to fish British waters was the last obstacle to be resolved. FRANCE 24's International Affairs Editor Armen Georgian tells us more.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
