The European Commission on whether
impose punitive tariffs on photovoltaic products announced preliminary results
of the occasion, in the photovoltaic industry chain upstream and downstream of
the many forms of protest against European companies to the European Commission
"dog in the manger" act of trade protectionism. China
24, 2011, on behalf of more than 580 solar companies in Europe, industry associations - the European Union in Brussels Parity polycrystalline solar panels held a special "funeral", "mourning" because of the European Commission against Chinese PV products may impose punitive tariffs and about to lose more than 20 million European jobs. The same day, a line of protesters carrying a special white wooden coffin parade in Brussels, were passing through the European Parliament, the European Council building, headquarters of the European Commission finally stopped in front of the words "will mourn the passing of 200,000 jobs." and other slogans side played a dirge.
The European Union is a parity by the European solar PV industry chain upstream and downstream enterprises consisting of industry alliances, its business for the European people to provide more than 60,000 jobs, and the creation of more than 200 billion euros (about $ 26 billion) in revenue. The association spokesman Torsten general Ignatius Shas in the "funeral", said: "The European Commission proposed the EU imports of Chinese PV products imposed ranged from 37 to 69 percent punitive tariff proposal is wrong and also failed to take into account the European PV industry as a whole. punitive tariffs will lead
to lose at least 200,000 jobs. "
General Ignatius Shas said that the European Union is strongly cheap Photovoltaic Panels EU asked the European Commission to consider the entire PV industry chain business interests, only to rely on the industry chain,
high-quality photovoltaic products to create high added value for the European
and employment opportunities. China
European independent economic research institutes forecast Institute recently conducted a study showed that the European Union on Chinese PV products such as punitive tariffs will lead to EU consumers installation of photovoltaic products and a significant reduction in the demand for related services, thereby reducing employment opportunities especially photovoltaic industry chain in addition to production on the part of outside employment opportunities. At the same time, since many Chinese PV companies are from
Europe and imported raw materials,
components, manufacturing equipment, so this will also give European trade
protection act bring "added value" of the reduction.
