PRESS RELEASE: European industry calls on EU to prove its backbone towards China

Brussels, 11 July 2016 – Ahead of the EU China Summit in Beijing on 12-13 July, AEGIS Europe, an alliance of more than 30 European manufacturing associations, calls on European Commission President Juncker and President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, to take a clear position against Chinese dumping, overcapacity and illegal subsidies.

"China is not a market economy and therefore cannot be granted Market Economy Status (MES) by the EU. It is of critical importance for all European industries that anti-dumping measures are calculated properly and remain effective and possible under EU trade law," said Milan Nitzschke, spokesman for AEGIS Europe.

China's state planned economy systematically orchestrates overcapacities and then offers products below production costs in international markets to overwhelm competition.

“Silicon is a clear example of what China is able to do: massive overcapacity, persistent dumping and circumvention from China for over 25 years, despite anti-dumping measures in place and anti-circumvention proceedings,” pointed out Ines Vanlierde, Chair of AEGIS Europe and Secretary General of Euroalliages.

Here you can find AEGIS Europe press release, and here a video of Euroalliages's Secretary General Inès Van Lierde, talking about the impact of Chinese overcapacities on Silicon producers in the EU.

 

Following the EU-China Summit in Beijing on 12 – 13 July, AEGIS Europe says that European leaders must not let down European industry and its workers by giving into China on Market Economy Status (MES). ‘Concessions’ on steel dumping are not justification for the granting of the much-coveted status.
