EU: Document on E-Bike dumping accuses China distorting competition

 |  November 20, 2018

The recently published “General Final Disclosure Document” on “Case AD643, Anti-dumping proceeding concerning imports of electric bicycles originating in the People’s Republic of China” brings to light the motivations that lead to the European Union’s intention to impose high dumping duties on e-bikes imported from China, reported Bike EU.

The European Commission’s motivations vary from state interference by China leading to distorting competition bringing significantly lower than average prices of imports which led to findings of substantial undercutting and dumping.

What the 32 paged Disclosure Document  also reveals are the very detailed counter arguments brought forward in this case by the CCCME (China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Machinery and Electronic Products); the Collective of European Importers of Electric Bicycles, as well as individual companies like Giant China. Giant China in particular pushed for Market Economy Treatment in this case which was rejected by the European Commission.
