China partially wins WTO case over Obama-era US tariffs
    2018-03-23  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE United States did not fully comply with a 2014 ruling against its anti-subsidy tariffs on a range of Chinese products, a World Trade Organization (WTO) compliance panel said in a ruling Wednesday that either side can appeal within 20 days.

The ruling came ahead of the White House’s announcement Thursday that U.S. President Donald Trump will announce tariffs on Chinese imports.

The move is expected to trigger retaliation from China and stoke fears of a global trade war.

China went to the WTO in 2012 to challenge U.S. anti-subsidy tariffs on Chinese exports including solar panels, wind towers, steel cylinders and aluminum extrusions.

At the time, it said its complaint covered an annual US$7.3 billion in exports to the United States.

The WTO panel agreed that the United States had not correctly used third country prices to assess the subsidies, but supported the U.S. assertion that exporters were getting subsidies from Chinese “public bodies,” despite China’s assertions to the contrary.

If China’s complaint survives a potential appeal, it would move a step closer to retaliatory sanctions on U.S. trade, although the two sides would first have to settle on the value of sanctions, which would involve a round of legal argument.

The dispute centered on 17 investigations carried out by the U.S. Department of Commerce between 2007 and 2012.

The products concerned were solar panels, wind towers, thermal and coated paper, tow-behind lawn groomers, kitchen shelving, steel sinks, citric acid, magnesia carbon bricks, pressure pipes, line pipes, seamless pipes, steel cylinders, drill pipes, oil country tubular goods, wire strands and aluminum extrusions.
