SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China has started anti-dumping and anti-subsidy investigations on wine from EU, in response to the EU’s antidumping duties (ADDs) on Chinese solar products, industries sources said on Wednesday.

The EU announced on Tuesday that it will impose 11.8% provisional antidumping duties (ADDs) on imports of solar panels, cells, and wafers from China from 6 June to 6 August.

Economics and trade relations play an important role in the relationship between China and Europe, and thus China is unwilling to see the solar trade conflict impact this relationship, China’s Ministry of Commerce said.

Meanwhile, China is keen to make negotiations with the EU as early as possible, the ministry added.

China launched anti-dumping and anti-subsidy probes on wine from EU after complaints from the domestic wine industry that wine from the EU is affecting the domestic market, the ministry announced in a statement on 5 June, without disclosing other details.
