ROME, March 31 The implementation of a proposed
border tax under discussion in the United States would be a
reason to file a complaint with the World Trade Organisation
(WTO), the chief executive of Italian steel firm Marcegaglia
said on Friday.
"A border tax would be a declaration of trade war that
should be brought before the WTO, and when you start a war you
don't know where you will end up," Emma Marcegaglia told
reporters in Rome.
Marcegaglia said it was still possible that the proposal
would not be carried out, and that the issue could be resolved
through trans-Atlantic negotiations.
