China double standards hits jobs - EUbusiness Week newsletter 776
EUbusiness Week 776 top stories: EU debates options for the future of Europe; UK must obey free movement laws till Brexit, say MEPs; MEPs urge full ban on trade in elephant ivory; EU agrees position on emissions trading reform; EU imposes new anti-dumping duties on Chinese steel; New EU app to track invasive alien animals and plants
Strong words for China's trade practices from AEGIS Europe this week,
accusing it of systemically weakening sectors with a view to engaging in
strategic takeovers of foreign interests. With its 'strict diet of
state subsidies for manufacturing, financing overcapacities, distorting
prices and encouraging dumping of exports', China is not a market
economy, said AEGIS spokesperson Milan Nitzschke.
The EU must insist on reciprocity and compliance with international trade rules, he warns, otherwise the resulting double standards will increase job losses and further unnecessarily weaken European manufacturing - the backbone of the European economy.
