CHINA: Leather Association Urges Response To EU Probe
The China Leather Association is urging the nation's shoe manufactures to get ready to respond to a EU anti-dumping probe anticipated to begin at the end of the month.
Association secretary-general Su Chaoying said that even small-scale producing sectors such as safety-shoe makers must be prepared to join in with actively opposing any restrictive measure.
The EU, which says that the surge in shoe exports since global quotas ended is endangering European manufacturers, is planning an investigation into dumping which will last for up to nine months.
Chinese Commerce Ministry spokesman Chong Quan says that the probe is unjustified, and lacks "a practical or legal basis".
Chong added in a statement on the Ministry's website: "China urges the EU to start with the facts, make prudent decisions and avoid trade frictions."
