US: The U.S. government on Monday was set to re-open its signature small business pandemic aid program with $284 billion in new funds and revamped rules that aim to get cash to the neediest businesses while stamping out fraud and abuse.
The Small Business Administration (SBA) announced on Friday that it would launch a third round of the Pay check Protection Program (PPP) this week, starting with small community financial institutions on Monday, and larger lenders in coming days.
By prioritizing smaller lenders, the SBA hopes to address criticism from lawmakers that minority and women-owned businesses did not get enough money during the first two PPP rounds last year compared with bigger businesses.
Eurozone: The European Union is working on a proposal for the incoming Biden administration on a new trade relationship, including settling a longstanding aircraft dispute that has seen the allies impose tariffs on $11.5 billion of each other’s exports, according to people familiar with the matter.
The EU is in discussions with member states affected by the conflict, including Germany and France, over how to resolve the issue of illegal aid both sides provided to Airbus SE (OTC:EADSY) and Boeing (NYSE:BA) Co., said the people, who asked not to be identified because preparations are ongoing.
The proposal from the European Commission, the bloc’s executive, would seek to cover the broader trade relationship with the U.S., not just the aircraft dispute, one of the people said.
