GERMANY: Economics minister Philipp Rösler (FDP) attacked the European Commission for their stock decision to rely on an anti-dumping proceedings against Chinese network technology.
"This is a serious mistake," Roesler said. Against the consequences of punitive tariffs against Chinese solar industry said the government had always warned. In the meantime, China has announced countermeasures.
"This shows that punitive tariffs are the wrong instrument The German economy is rightly worried," Roesler said. "I therefore expect the Commission that they will do everything to prevent a fundamental trade conflict., The Commission must rely on a negotiated solution and dialogue instead of threats. It must now quickly establish a mutually acceptable solution with China."
