PARIS (Reuters) – The United States agreed on Thursday to remove trade sanctions measures it had applied against several countries that have decided to impose taxes on digital services, targeting in particular the US giants of the sector, the parties to the agreement announced.

These retaliatory measures had been suspended by the Joe Biden administration to give a chance to negotiations on a comprehensive tax reform, which resulted in an international agreement this month.

“In support of this agreement, Austria, France, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States today announced the terms of an agreement for the transition of taxes on existing digital services towards a new multilateral solution,” reported the Ministry of Economy and French Finance. it said in a statement.

This solution will be built through exchanges and “constructive dialogue,” he added.
