China Slams EU Anti-dumping Move, Threatens WTO Action

From AFP:

China Wednesday blasted an decision to slap hefty duties on Chinese-made screws and bolts and said it may take the issue to the World Trade Organisation.

“China’s government and industry express strong dissatisfaction over this,” Commerce Ministry spokesman Yao Jian said in a statement posted on the ministry’s website.

“The Chinese side will study and evaluate this decision and reserves the right to appeal to the WTO.”

In one of the biggest anti-dumping cases against China, the EU made a final decision Monday to slap levies on imports of some Chinese fasteners, according to EU documents.
