European Union Commissioner for Trade Phil Hogan stated on Thursday in Washington DC that his talks with United States Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer were "very good." He also stressed that the EU desires a deeper economic relationship with the US.

However, Hogan noted that the bloc is prepared to retaliate with tariffs due to US aid to Boeing after losing a World Trade Organization (WTO) battle with the US over its Airbus subsidies.

Earlier in the day, Hogan met US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and stated they talked about "practical ways to improve the transatlantic business environment."
