US solar import duties will worsen trade row, China says

A US plan to impose more punitive duties on Chinese solar products will worsen the trade dispute between the two countries, China Daily reported Wednesday, citing the Ministry of Commerce.

The ministry called efforts by the United States to restrict Chinese products an abuse of trade agreements aimed at trade protection, the report said.

The Financial Times reported that the US plans to impose extra import duties of up to 35.2 per cent on Chinese-made solar panels after a preliminary finding that “photovoltaic solar components imported from China were being subsidised in a way that damaged US-based manufacturers.”
