France to complain to WTO if US raises tariffs

France's Minister of the Economy and Finance Bruno Le Maire (pictured) claimed in an interview with France 3 television on Sunday that, if Washington decides to increase tariffs on French imports, Paris would take the case to the World Trade Organisation (WTO).

Earlier last week, the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) suggested imposing tariffs of up to 100% on certain French goods "with an approximate trade value of $2.4 billion" after it determined that "France's Digital Services Tax (DST) discriminates against US companies."
