EU intends to live up to its commitments, WFSGI

The WFSGI notes that the Chinese government has requested WTO consultations on the European Union's anti-dumping tariffs on Chinese and Vietnamese footwear imports.

“The EU's controversial decision to extend these duties for an additional 15 months could now lead to a worrying cycle of litigation and retaliation” said John E. Larsen, WFSGI President.

The WFSGI believes in open markets and free trade to the benefit of consumers, producers and retailers alike. "Whilst we do not welcome an upswing in litigation, it is essential that governments know that protectionist measures will be subjected to intense scrutiny,” said Robbert De Kock, the Federation's Secretary General.

Despite countless pledges to defend free trade, the European Union seems intent on pursuing the path of protectionism. We call on EU leaders and the European Commission to take immediate action to reassure their Chinese counterparts that the EU intends to live up to its commitments. This deeply worrying situation must not be allowed to escalate any further.
