Chinese solar industry hits at protectionism (2)

08:14, August 31, 2012

After co-chairing the second round of Chinese-German inter-governmental consultations in the morning, Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel told reporters she suggested that the European Commission and China should try to resolve the issue through communication, rather than by resorting to anti-dumping proceedings.

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao echoed Merkel's stance, saying consultations are an effective tool for working out trade disputes and that was an important outcome of Thursday's inter-governmental consultations.

Germany's SolarWorld and other European solar panel makers last month filed a complaint seeking import tariffs on Chinese-made solar products. There will be a 45-day period before the European Union's executive commission decides whether to start investigations.

China's solar product exports were valued at 35.8 billion U.S. dollars in 2011, with the EU receiving a share of more than 60 percent of the products, according to industry data.
