New investigation in to imports of leather footwear

Vito Artioli, president of ANCI (Italian footwear manufacturers' association): “we are satisfied because they have acknowledged our case and consumer protection”

The European Commission came out in favour of opening a new investigation into trading practices underway in China and Vietnam for leather footwear.

This new investigation automatically brings with it an extension until the end of 2009 of the duties currently in force for imports from these two Asian countries.

"The Commission was forced to acknowledge our case, given that China and Vietnam are still embracing trade policies that obviously cause great harm to the European footwear industry", comments Vito Artioli, president of ANCI.

This is not a measure that limits trading, it is a necessary act against those countries that adopt unfair initiatives, marketing products below cost to undermine their competitors.”

Besides which, figures confirm the role played by this tool: total EU27 imports from China and Vietnam of products affected by these measures have decreased over the last 18 months by more than 40 million pairs (Eurostat data processed by ANCI).

At the same time, we have seen indirect exchange practices that show how the danger represented by products below cost is a very real problem.

“ANCI”, concludes Vito Artioli, “accompanied the request for additional investigations with questionnaires that confirm the ongoing harm done to the European industry.

Thanks to valuable collaboration with the Government and in particular with Undersecretary Mr. Urso and the excellent political work carried out we have achieved a result that a few days ago seemed to be hanging in the balance.

Now we are awaiting the results of the EU investigation: I am confident we will manage to extend the duration of the duties for five more years."
