Chinese govt vehemently opposes anti-dumping duties

On December 22, the EU Council of Ministers adopted the proposal of the European Commission to extend anti-dumping duties on leather shoes from China and Vietnam for another 15 months.

A spokesperson of China Ministry of Commerce pointed out that the Chinese side is strongly dissatisfied with the decision of the European Commission and it opposes any form of extension of anti-dumping measures.

The Chinese side will appeal to the WTO dispute settlement mechanism and take appropriate measures to effectively safeguard legitimate rights and interests of Chinese industries.

Yao Jian said that the European Union initiated anti-dumping measures on China made leather shoes in October 2006 without adequate legal and factual basis, which aroused much controversy even within EU members.

The European Commission, taking into account the strong internal opposition, changed the implementation time of anti-dumping measures from the usual five years to two years in its final decision; with a caveat to discontinue these duties after two years.

At the end of the two year period in October, the European Commission started the review over anti-dumping investigations of Chinese-made shoes. The representatives from most of the EU member states opposed extending these duties.

However, the European Commission ultimately succumbed to pressures of trade protectionism and insisted on extending anti-dumping measures on Chinese-made shoes.

The spokesperson underlined the fact that during the recovery process of global economies, all countries should in particular, avoid the abuse of trade protection measures, as trade protectionism will only undermine mutual trust, its ultimate result will harm others without benefiting oneself.
