European ceramic tableware anti-dumping turning machine
The European Commission recently voted on the taxation plan for importing ceramic tableware and kitchen utensils from China. Fourteen of the EU's 27 member states voted against it, but the European Commission has not responded to this. As most EU member states voted against it, the EU will reconsider the taxation plan for importing ceramic tableware and kitchen utensils from China, which will also benefit domestic related ceramic manufacturers.
Tu Xinquan, deputy director of the WTO Research Institute of the University of International Business and Economics, said that according to the procedure, the results of the voting of the European Commission must be approved by the EU Anti-Dumping Advisory Committee. If the committee feels that it is not necessary to continue the investigation, the case will be revoked. The final result also requires a report to the Council of the European Union and a final decision on whether to send it back for review. However, according to the current results, the objection to taxation is undoubtedly good news for domestic related industries. And in general, decisions made by the European Commission are rarely overturned.
It is understood that the European Commission will decide on November 16 whether to temporarily levy taxes on ceramic tableware and kitchen utensils imported from China. EU member states will vote to decide whether to become a formal tariff after six months. On February 16 this year, the European Commission issued a notice announcing an anti-dumping investigation against ceramic tableware and kitchen utensils exported from China to the European Union. This is the second anti-dumping investigation initiated on Indonesian ceramic tableware after Indonesia initiated an anti-dumping investigation on Chinese ceramic tableware (daily ceramics). It is also another anti-dumping duty imposed by the EU on Chinese building ceramics last year. Anti-dumping incident. According to EU sources, the European Commission plans to impose a 17%-58% tariff on Chinese tableware and kitchenware manufacturers.
The relevant person in charge of the China Ceramic Industry Association said that the anti-dumping case involved an amount of up to 700 million US dollars, including more than 2,000 enterprises. At present, China is the largest producer of ceramic tableware. Its output accounts for 60% of the world's total, and its market share in the EU exceeds 50%. It is the largest importer of ceramic tableware in the European Union. According to statistics from EU importers, the total value of ceramic tableware and kitchen utensils imported from China in 2011 was about 800 million euros (about 1.04 billion US dollars).
In fact, before the vote, the relevant industries in the EU had different voices. The European Ceramics Industry Association said that when quotas were abolished, China’s share of the EU tableware and kitchenware market in 2011 rose from 22% in 2004 to 67%. In the past five years, the output of EU tableware and kitchenware manufacturers has lost 650 million euros and laid off 10,000 people, accounting for about 30% of the entire department. Foreign trade associations representing European retailers and importers say that the imposition of tariffs may result in the closure of some trading companies that import Chinese cups and plates, and impose a huge burden on the store.
For the first time, China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Light Industrial Products and Crafts made a public statement on the anti-dumping investigations on Chinese ceramic products exported to Europe. The Chinese ceramic products exported to Europe did not constitute dumping. The EU abused trade protection measures and damaged Sino-European economic and trade relations. Unfavorable industries are also unfavorable to the EU ceramics industry, and will make the EU's consumers, importers and retailers the main victims.
According to the reporter, Chinese ceramic products have become the type of export products with a high frequency of investigation. Frequent anti-dumping investigations have had a huge impact on the export of China's ceramic products. Especially since the temporary anti-dumping duties were introduced on March 17, 2011, the export volume of Foshan ceramic products to the EU, which accounted for more than 75% of the national export volume, fell by more than 50% year-on-year.
Analysts in the industry believe that some countries and regions frequently launch anti-dumping investigations on China's ceramic products. The external reason is the rise of international trade protectionism. The internal reasons are the vicious competition caused by overcapacity and low entry barriers. Most enterprises can only rely on Price competition to gain an advantage.
