SAO PAULO, Dec 20 (Reuters) - 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.
