WASHINGTON, D.C. – Marjorie Chorlins, U.S. Chamber’s Senior Vice President for European Affairs issued the following statement regarding the United States Trade Representative’s (USTR) announcement considering imposition of tariffs on French goods in retaliation for France’s unilateral Digital Services Tax (DST). 

“The U.S. Chamber strongly opposes France’s DST, which discriminates against U.S. companies. In our view, the path forward is for all parties to redouble efforts to devise a multilateral solution to the tax challenges posed by digitalization of the global economy in the negotiations now underway at the OECD.”
