China urges EU to abide by WTO rules on anti-dumping treatment

Updated 2017-06-30 08:49:24 Xinhua

China urged the European Union (EU) to abide by World Trade Organization rules in conducting anti-dumping investigations against China.

The European Parliament passed the amendment on new investigation methods for anti-dumping on June 20, which followed current standards in reviewing non-market economies.

The amendment still uses the surrogate country approach in its anti-dumping investigations, which is discriminatory, unfair and against the WTO regulations, according to Sun Jiwen, spokesperson for the Ministry of Commerce.

According to Article 15, WTO members should have stopped using the surrogate country approach to conduct anti-dumping investigations on China by Dec. 11, 2016.

China is highly concerned with the process of the EU amendment and hopes the EU will fulfill its WTO obligations to manage bilateral trade friction and promote steady economic exchanges, Sun added.
