U.S. aims to present figures on impact of tariffs in mid-January: report

BERLIN (Reuters) – The U.S. Commerce Department plans to present new calculations on the impact that tariffs on foreign cars would have on the U.S. market in four weeks’ time, a German magazine reported on Thursday.

WirtschaftsWoche cited unnamed EU sources as saying the report – on whether to impose tariffs of up to 25 percent on imported cars and parts on national security grounds – had failed to be approved during the consultation process between government departments.

The European Commission declined to comment on the report.
