A few days ago, the official website of the Ministry of Commerce announced that the European Commission recently announced the final ruling on the mid-term review of the PV countermeasures against China, and decided to change the form of the measure and replace the original price commitment with a lower limit price. Implementing a lower export price limit means that the implementing country sets a lower price limit. When the export price of another country is higher than the lower price limit, it will not be taxed; if it is lower than the lower price limit, the tax rate is the import price and the lower price. The difference of the limit price. However, industry analysis points out that due to the uncertainty of the EU's final price limit, it is not yet possible to determine whether the new model will be tightened or deregulated for Chinese photovoltaic products.
In this regard, Wang Hejun, director of the Trade Remedy Investigation Bureau of the Ministry of Commerce, pointed out that China-EU photovoltaic price commitments are the result of the joint efforts of the government and the industry under the high-level attention of the two sides. Opinions put forward by organizations and enterprises to replace price commitments with lower limit prices that are not limited in quantity, and gradually lower the lower limit levels, which has taken a positive step to promote the Sino-European photovoltaic trade to return to normal market conditions as soon as possible. .
Wang Hejun pointed out that in the past few years, the EU ’s photovoltaic countermeasures have objectively caused unnecessary distortions in the EU market, which is not in the interest of China or the interests of the EU. China hopes that the EU will completely terminate the PV countermeasures as soon as possible, provide a more stable and predictable business environment for the cooperation between the two industries as soon as possible, and realize the mutual benefit of the industries of both sides.
