It doesn’t look good for Beijing. Brussels and Washington still refuse to recognise China as a market economy and the Commission has proposed legislation that completely changes the rules for EU trade with third countries. EURACTIV Czech Republic partner Aktuálně.cz reports.
The United States and the European Union are trying to protect their markets against cheap Chinese exports. They are mostly concentrating their attention on the steel industry. In February, the US imposed customs duties on Chinese steel imports ranging from 63 to 190%. The EU then burdened some Chinese steel products with taxes amounting to 30–65 %.
Last December, China’s fifteen-year exemption from the Accession Protocol to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) expired. It allowed other members to use special methods to calculate anti-dumping protectionist measures.
As a result, states were able to impose much higher duties, for example, on Chinese products, thus protecting their markets from cheap imports – and dumping. However, this could change with the acquisition of market status. More than 90 countries have already acknowledged China’s market status.
The Commission proposes a new approach
The European Commission, though, has come up with a different approach. It has proposed new legislation that no longer divides countries according to market and non-market economies. If the new legislation is passed, the EU will be able to continue to impose protectionist measures against China and the question of whether it assigns China market status will have no meaning.
According to the new rules, the EU would no longer assess countries as a whole but would focus on the individual markets in those countries. If malpractice or free trade were discovered in any of them, there would be no problem in raising customs duties or non-tariff barriers.
So far the Commission’s proposal has not faced any great resistance among the member states. So it seems that the end of the division into market and non-market economies appeals to individual governments.
“I agree that we have to find a way how to protect steelmakers, ceramic industry and other sectors against the Chinese dumping. Especially when we see the policy of the United States towards China,” Czech ANO 2011 MEP Dita Charanzová (ALDE) also said.
“The proposal by the Commission is a good way to go. But it must be further fine-tuned so that it really gives guarantees to these sectors,” she stressed.
The European Parliament is also in favour of greater protection
Heated discussions regarding the granting of market status to China took place in the EU throughout the whole of 2016. Not only MEPs but also European industry, for the most part, was strongly opposed to the EU considering this Asian superpower as a market economy.
“All the evidence clearly shows that China is not a market economy. There is no reason why the European Union should act this way with China. On the contrary, it should use all the instruments it has to defend itself against unfair competition and protect its industry and jobs,” said the German MEP Reinhard Bütikofer (Greens/EFA).
UK Labour MEP David Martin (S&D) was even more radical.
“We have to insist on improving and strengthening the protection of our trade against imports from China. European manufacturers cannot wait any longer. We have to act now. If we don’t, soon there will be no industry in the EU for us to protect,” he said.
