BEIJING — The Ministry of Commerce (MOC) said on July 21 that China was subject by 37 trade remedy probes in H1, including 32 anti-dumping cases.
Altogether 14 countries and regions, mostly G20 members, initiated investigations targeting Chinese products, down 30 percent year on year, MOC spokesman Shen Danyang revealed at a press conference.
The probes involved $3.5 billion, down 34 percent year on year.
Hardware, chemicals and the light industries are areas that suffered the most probes, according to the MOC.
“We hope countries concerned will use trade remedies cautiously and properly, and step up government-to-government talks to resolve the disputes through dialogue and cooperation,” Shen said.
