BRUSSELS -- China has become the top target of the European Union's punitive trade measures in the first seven months of 2013, according to the latest report issued by the European Commission on Wednesday.

All of the Union's four anti-dumping and anti-subsidy investigations from Jan 1 to July 31 were targeted against China, said the report.

The investigations covered products including seamless steel pipes, solar glass and agglomerated stone.

Meanwhile, five of the seven definitive duties imposed by the EU were against Chinese products ranging from steel products to kitchenware.

Currently there are 84 anti-dumping and 10 countervailing measures in force in the EU, according to the report. At the end of July, 36 investigations were on-going.
