Macron discussed need for broad digital tax deal with Trump

France’s Emmanuel Macron discussed the need for an international agreement on taxing digital service companies with U.S. President Donald Trump in a call on Friday, the French president’s office said.

The exchange – which partly centred on Iran and the upcoming summit of the G7 group of rich nations in August – came after Trump earlier said he would hit France with “substantial reciprocal action” after Paris announced a tax that will affect U.S. technology companies.

“The president also underlined that the G7 summit would be an important opportunity to move towards a universal taxation of digital activities, which is in our common interest, and which we need to keep working on in order to obtain a broad international agreement,” Macron’s office said.
