Canada — Export credits and loan guarantees for regional aircraft
The DSB adopted the panel report. Brazil said that it acknowledged with
satisfaction that Canada had been found to provide prohibited export
subsidies to support the export of aircraft. Brazil added that it was an
important step in restoring the level playing field in the aircraft
sector. Finally, Brazil said it hoped that bilateral efforts in the search
of a mutually satisfactory solution would be successful.
Canada said that despite its reservations about certain
aspects of the panel's report, it believed that it was preferable to seek
a solution through negotiation rather than through continued WTO
litigation. Canada added that on 8 February 2002 senior Canadian and
Brazilian negotiators met and that they had agreed to resume negotiations
The EC and the US expressed concern about the panel's
conclusions on the relationship between the WTO's Subsidies Agreement and
the OECD arrangement on export credits.
The DSB elected by acclamation Ambassador Pérez del Castillo of
Uruguay as its new chairman.
The next regular meeting of the DSB will take place on 8 March 2002.
