The European Union has expressed dismay that it will have to wait until June for the World Trade Organization to issue its ruling on subsidies allegedly granted to U.S. aircraft manufacturer Boeing. See EU Complains of Late Date in WTO Ruling on Boeing, Assoc. Press, Jan. 25, 2010. According to the story, the EU is concerned that the 10-month gap between the Boeing ruling and last September's WTO decision on the illegality of subsidies conferred to Airbus will "prove unhelpful if the EU and U.S. arrive at a point where they wish to sit down and negotiate a solution."
