Storyline


China's Ministry of Commerce on Thursday urged the European Union to strictly abide by the World Trade Organization (WTO) rules concerning dumping to honor the authority of the organization.

Spokesman Gao Feng made the remarks at a press conference in response to reports alleging China is "discriminatingly treated" by the EU.

EU parties reached an agreement on Oct. 3 to treat all WTO members the same in determining whether they are dumping their products, but they will make exceptions for cases of "significant market distortions" with excessive government intervention. Some analyses referred the "exception" to China.

Gao said there is no such concept of "significant market distortion" in the WTO rules about anti-dumping, nor are there any articles on environment or labor dumping. The EU lacks a regulatory ground within the WTO framework to make such an agreement, which will undermine the WTO's anti-dumping legislation and augment uncertainty in the application of its laws.

"We urge the EU side to strictly abide by the rules of the WTO and fulfill its commitment to the international treaties in a kind and all-round way to honor the authority of the WTO. We will watch closely related moves of the EU and resort to corresponding measures when necessary to resolutely safeguard China's legitimate rights and interests," said Gao.
