China voices "deep concern" over U.S. wind tower dumping probe


13:53, January 22, 2012

BEIJING, Jan. 21 (Xinhua) -- China's Ministry of Commerce (MOC) on Saturday expressed its deep concern over the United States' anti-dumping and anti-subsidy probe into Chinese exports of wind towers.

"The act will not only hamper bilateral cooperation in the field of new energy and harm the interests of U.S. industries, but also go against global efforts to tackle the challenges of climate change and energy security," the MOC said in a statement on its website.

"China hopes the U.S. side can respect relevant laws and facts, and abide by the commitment made at the G20 summit in Cannes that all countries should avoid introducing new trade protectionism measures," it said.

The statement came after U.S. Commerce Department announced on Thursday that it was to launch anti-dumping and anti-subsidy investigations on wind towers from China and Vietnam.

The merchandise covered by the investigation is steel towers that support the engine and rotor blades for use in wind turbines with electrical power generation capacities in excess of 100 kw, the Commerce Department said in a statement.

The department alleged China had a dumping margin at 213.54 percent and Vietnam at 140.54 to 143.29 percent in wind tower prices.

What can you do? I owed you $1000 but the money is in my pocket! Go ahead and jump, grown, yell, scream, spit, whatever you want. Would I care? No. This is similar to China and the U.S. You have trillions in the U.S. Banks and you want the U.S. to listen to you? No. My money, in my pockets, you only have the number on the paper. I fill for bankruptcy and you are done with.

To express concern is useless. What"s China going to do about it is the key.
