Association regrets U.S. duties on Chinese washing machines

Updated 2017-02-04 20:43:14 Xinhua

A Chinese industry association Saturday expressed "deep regret" over anti-dumping duties imposed by the United States on imports of large washing machines from China.

"The move hurts not only Chinese manufacturers, but also the interests of U.S. consumers," the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Machinery and Electronic Products (CCCME) said in a statement.

In December 2016, the U.S. Commerce Department set final dumping rates on imports of large residential washing machines from China. On Monday, the U.S. International Trade Commission made final rulings on the measures.

"The chamber is concerned about the U.S. use of trade remedy measures to protect its own market, and hopes to solve the issue through negotiations to gain win-win results," the statement said. "The CCCME has organized affected companies to make necessary responses under the guidance of the trade remedy and investigation bureau under the Ministry of Commerce."

Imports of those products from China were estimated at about 1.1 billion U.S. dollars in 2015, according to U.S. official data.
