Written question – Granting market economy status to China – E-002145/2016
Granting functioning market economy status to China would have an enormous impact on Europe’s industry. The outcome of the negotiations between the Commission and the World Trade Organisation on this matter will also have a major impact on the EU economy. European industry will be unable to cope with the invasion of subsidised Chinese products exported to the EU. This decision would jeopardise millions of jobs in Europe.
How will the Commission tackle this problem?
What trade defence measures will the Commission adopt to prevent the entry of counterfeit products and products imported at dumping prices?
