Trump, Macron to hold off digital tax dispute until end of 2020: French diplomat Updated: 2020-01-21 13:35:03 KST

The United States and France have reportedly agreed to hold off their dispute over digital taxes until the end of this year.
Reuters reported Tuesday, citing a French diplomatic source, that the two countries have decided to continue negotiations on a digital tax at the OECD through the rest of the year, and neither side will impose tariffs during that period.
French President Emmanuel Macron tweeted on Monday that he discussed the digital tax with President Trump and that the two will work together to avoid raising tariffs.
The White House also said on Monday the two have agreed to pursue a successful negotiation.
The U.S. has threatened to impose tariffs on French goods in response to France's decision last July to tax big U.S. tech companies.
