“Europe’s gateway is open to all trading partners, but we need a solid drawbridge against dumping products that can be raised in an emergency said the EPP Group spokesman on international trade, Daniel Caspary (DE) in a first reaction to today’s presentation by the European Commission of the proposal for revised trade defence instruments.
“The EU needs to have sufficient leverage against imports at dumping prices, without the European Union abandoning its aim of free trade”.
“The trade defense instruments need to be transparent, both for the European economy and for our trading partners. World trade must continue to be Europe’s priority. But if we encounter unfair competition due to dumping imports or subsidies, the EU needs to be able to defend itself and protect its domestic industry”.
