EU companies against anti-dumping duties on Chinese solar panels

Xinhua | Updated: 2013-05-09 12:29

AFASE called upon the European Commission to "understand that the value added lies upstream and downstream from solar panel production."

"Imposing provisional duties on imports of Chinese solar panels would be against the European Union's interest and a clear contradiction with Europe's ambition to build a green and high value-added economy," it added.

AFASE warned against the "irreversible" impact of the imposition of provisional anti-dumping duties even if a negotiated solution can be finally found.

"These duties will immediately put a halt to most of the PV projects in the EU and cause severe damage that no negotiation concluded after the imposition of provisional duties can ever repair," it said.

AFASE requests the European Commission to "take into account the interests of an EU PV value chain that stands to lose a great many jobs and value added to the detriment of the EU economy overall."

The European Commission is expected to announce the final decision on whether to impose provisional anti-dumping duties on Chinese solar products on June 6. Definitive duties are scheduled to be decided on in December this year.
