Chinese winemakers demand anti-dumping and countervailing probe into EU imports.

The China Alcoholic Drinks Association (CADA) on August 20 announced that it had filed a complaint to the Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM), accusing winemakers in the EU of selling their products below market value and receiving unfair government subsidies.

"At the request of domestic winemakers, our association has submitted a petition to the MOFCOM, asking the ministry to launch anti-dumping and countervailing duty investigations on wine imports from the EU," said Wang Zuming, secretary general of the wine division of CADA.

"CADA has collected evidence through public channels. We have noticed a clear intention to sell European wines in the Chinese market at below-cost price. There is also sufficient evidence to show that the EU has heavily subsidized its wine industry and exporters," Wang said.
