China does not apply any punishment for importing polysilicon from the EU
It was told once more by the german Economics Ministry that no vindictive duties shall be given by China due to conflicting imports from the EU. Thursday the statements were backed up by the Ministry of Economics, no increase in punitive tariffs is to be made in regard with import of polysilicon.
The Economics spokesperson Stefan Rouenhoff declared: “To our knowledge, there will be no Chinese punitive tariffs on European polysilicon imports to China, Negotiations between the EU and China regarding the EU anti-dumping and anti-subsidy cases against solar panels from China are continuing. The aim of the Federal Ministry of Economy is to continue to contribute to an amicable solution between the EU and China.”
Beijing had not made any obligation to dictate anti-dumping punishment on the polysilicon line from the EU. This remains to be given by an unknown source related to China’s Ministry of Commerce giving a feedback on the polysilicon factor between Chinese minister of commerce Gao Hucheng and German economics minister Philipp Rösler.
Further bargains are taken by a Chinese delegation in Brussels this week on the EU’s anti-dumping fees in Chinese PV imports after a 3 week delegation made by EU in Beijing. Negotiations continue, said Helen Banner, the spokesperson of EU trade agent Karel De Gucht.
The EU Agency aproved a phased admittance in June in which anti-dumping fees are to be raised 11.8% on Chinese imports, even though a sound confronting was given by a large number of EU member states.
For months, authoritative taxes were taken into consideration regarding polysilicon imports from the EU by China, the Ministry of Commerce started an investigation in the imports of European polysilicon in the end of the last year in a short while after EU Commison began its investigation into the claimed anti-dumping procedures by Chinese producers.
