Ministry urges US, EU to stop 'politicizing' Chinese trade

Trade protectionism targeting China will continue to be "severe" unless developed markets — especially the United States and the European Union — stop politicizing trade investigations into made-in-China goods, a senior commerce official has warned.

"The situation remains challenging and complicated," said Zhou Xiaoyan, head of the Bureau of Fair Trade for Imports & Exports at the Ministry of Commerce.

"More and more high-end Chinese exports, such as telecom goods, are getting embroiled in trade investigations, and this will continue," she said.

Trade conflicts between China and developed economies have escalated this year, with investigations now taking place on various types of goods, but most notably solar panels.

China has been a major target of anti-dumping investigations for the past 17 years, and a target of anti-subsidy cases for the past six years.

According to the ministry, a total of 758 trade cases worth $68.4 billion were filed against Chinese exporters from 2003 to the end of September.

Zhou added: "The US and the EU have started to resort more frequently to filing trade investigations to fend off competition for their own industries and businesses, and they will continue to politicize any trade frictions with China."
