SAO PAULO Dec 20 Brazil's challenge of Canadian
state support for Bombardier Inc at the World Trade
Organization is "necessary," the chief executive of Embraer SA
said on Tuesday.
Brazil said on Monday it had authorized WTO proceedings
against Canada over $2.5 billion in support for Bombardier from
the province of Quebec. Brazil's Embraer CEO Paulo Cesar Silva
told journalists that Canadian government help brought the rival
planemaker back from near bankruptcy.
