In response to the recent “European Union’s anti-dumping investigation on steel wheels imported from China”, the spokesman of the Ministry of Commerce responded that the content of the application in this case lacks accuracy and adequacy in some aspects, and does not comply with the WTO rules. Standards, the European Commission’s decision to decide on the lack of facts and legal basis.
On February 15, the European Commission issued an announcement to initiate an anti-dumping investigation against Chinese steel wheels. Gao believes that the content of the application in this case lacks accuracy and sufficiency in the industrial representation of the applicant, the status of China’s steel and energy market, and the impact of Chinese products on the EU industry. It does not meet the filing standards set by the WTO rules. The Commission’s decision to file a case lacks factual and legal basis.
Gao stressed that China has expressed serious concern about this approach and its subsequent investigation methods. We will pay close attention to the progress of the case and take necessary measures to resolutely safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese enterprises.
Gao said that the EU steel wheel industry speculated that Chinese products may pose damage to the EU industry without a factual basis. China is not the most important source of imports for EU steel wheels. Chinese products are a useful complement to the diversity of the EU market and will not cause damage to the EU market. Anti-dumping investigations will increase market uncertainty and harm the interests of EU consumers.
Gao pointed out that China has always opposed the abuse of trade remedy measures. It is hoped that the European Commission will abide by the WTO’s relevant rules and obligations, handle the case prudently, and avoid affecting the normal trade and good cooperation between the two industries.
