‘On the request of SpiritsEurope, a meeting was conveyed with a number of association members to discuss the latest developments in
EU-US trade relations. C. Burgsmüller explained the rationale behind the EU rebalancing measures, which were launched in response to
US trade restrictions on steel and aluminium and include spirits imported from the US, and discussed possible scenario’s in future EU-US
trade relations. SpiritsEurope indicated concerns about the future of Trade policy in particular with regard to US (largest market for EU
spirits; happy with the 25 July "cease-fire" but hope it will be resolved and lead to remove Bourbon from the rebalancing list). ‘
