U.S. to continue AD, CVD probes against Chinese PV products (2)

The United States imported nearly 1.2 billion U.S. dollars' worth of solar cells from China in 2010, according to USITC data.

The U.S. companies' complaints about their Chinese rivals came after the bankruptcy of Solyndra, a solar panel maker that received a half-billion-dollar federal loan from the Obama administration. Competition from China was cited as a key reason.

However, some U.S. companies disputed the charges, arguing that Chinese imports helped consumers and promoted rapid growth of the industry and that the tension could spark a trade war with China and raise prices for the entire industry.

Trade tensions with China are especially sensitive at a time when the U.S. and other Western economies want to boost technology exports to revive economic growth and cut unemployment.

China and the United States are two of the world's biggest markets for solar, wind and other renewable energy technology. Both governments are encouraging their own suppliers in order to generate higher value added growth.

The Chinese Commerce Ministry has repeatedly urged the United States to abide by its commitment against protectionism and work together with China and other members of the international community to maintain a free, open and just international trade environment.
