India leads pack in trade investigations

Updated 2017-07-07 09:21:41 China Daily

India overtook the United States as the country with the most trade remedy investigations against China in the first half of this year, the Ministry of Commerce said on Thursday.

India initiated 12 investigations against Chinese products, including aluminum foil and photovoltaic products, during the January-June period, followed by the US, which had 11, according to the ministry.

Overall, trade remedy investigations into Chinese products during the period came down around the world but remained at a high level, said Gao Feng, the ministry's spokesman.

China was the subject of 37 trade-remedy investigations worth .3 billion, initiated by 15 countries and regions in the first half of 2017, down from 65 cases worth .5 billion during the same period of last year.

Cases included 28 antidumping and four subsidy-related investigations involving .3 billion of products ranging from truck tires and tubing to steel.

"We oppose any misuse of trade remedy investigations," Gao said. "And there are several things that did not conform to the World Trade Organization rules, leading to strong objections from Chinese manufacturers in related industries."
