EU intends to levy anti-dumping duties on ceramic tableware in China
Recently, it was reported that the EU’s largest anti-dumping investigation in the history of Chinese ceramics was announced on May 13th. Although the final ruling rate may be slightly lower than the preliminary ruling result, it is still a pressure for Chinese ceramics enterprises with low export performance.
According to reports, the European Commission accused a number of Chinese companies to dump ceramic tableware at a low price or even below the cost of the EU countries, and from November 2012, they imposed a temporary tariff of 17.6% - 58.8% on these Chinese products. According to the regulations, after 6 months, it will vote to decide whether to extend the temporary tariff. At the beginning, most EU member states voted against it, but after that, the European Commission lowered the tax rate to 13.1% to 36.1%. This anti-dumping measure was recently passed. According to the usual practice, relevant tariff measures usually have a five-year validity period.
The reporter learned that the EU is China's largest trading partner. In 2011, the EU imported 728 million euros of ceramic tableware from China. Once the anti-dumping tax is put on the ground, it means that China's ceramic exports have been fully pressured by the EU. The EU has already launched anti-dumping against Chinese building ceramics, mosaics and other products.
According to data from the China Ceramic Industry Association, more than 2,000 companies in China have been involved in the anti-dumping case. In Nanjing, there are also many enterprises that export ceramic tableware, including Jiangsu Ceramics Import and Export (Group) Co., Ltd. and Jiangsu Gaochun Ceramics. At present, due to the sluggish international market, the export performance of some ceramic enterprises in Ning has fallen sharply.
According to the Jiangsu Gaochun Ceramics Annual Report, in 2012, the company completed its self-operated export of 138 million yuan, a year-on-year decrease of 34%, and only completed 68% of the plan. Gaochun Ceramics believes that China's ceramic exports have experienced another recession after a brief recovery in 2011. In 2012, the global economic slowdown was obvious, international trade protectionism was prevalent, China's foreign trade exports entered a low tide period, and the daily-use ceramics international market continued to slump. The demand for major importing countries of daily-use ceramics in Europe and the United States has shrunk. In the face of changes in international market demand, the company has been significantly reducing its export capacity, and has made great efforts to attack the bone china domestic market.
