Footwear sector seeks unity against EU anti-dumping

Jan '07
On January 8, four Chinese footwear enterprises (Aokang, Taima, Jinlu, Xinsheng Gangyuan) jointly issued the 'Beijing Joint Declaration of Chinese footwear Enterprises to Deal with Trade Barriers.'

Earlier, they had together commissioned a Lawyer to bring the litigation to EU court, claiming ruling of anti-dumping duties on Chinese shoes made in October last year to be irrelevant regulations.

The four companies hope that more Chinese enterprises to join them, 'establishing a common platform to deal against international trade barriers, sharing information, sharing funds, expressing their legitimate appeals together. '

The high cost of litigation and uncertainty about the future, as long as more than two years of appealing time are the reasons for more than 1,000 Chinese footwear companies choose to be silent.

It is worth noting that if more companies have joined the four enterprises, this should have been a loose alliance automatically formed among shoe manufacturing enterprises in China, since the war against EU anti-dumping case.

When the media paid attention to those silent footwear manufacturers, very few people noticed that the two most important export and import industrial organizations, China's light industrial products and arts and crafts chamber of commerce and China leather association, have also to be silent together with those manufacturers.

The disputes between the Chamber and the Association for dominancein the case cast even more uncertainties on the prospect.
