On July 20, the European Commission held a plenary meeting to discuss the impact assessment of changing the "surrogate country" approach. On July 20, the European Commission held a plenary meeting to discuss the impact assessment of changing the alternative country approach. The European Commission agreed that the EU would avoid the discussion on how to determine China's market economy status and instead take new measures to deal with what it considers dumping and illegal subsidies from China. On the same day, the European Commission believed that the EU must fulfill its obligation to recognize China as a member of the world trade organization, and formulate corresponding plans to maintain a strong trade protection system for its member economies

previously, EU countries had different opinions on whether to grant China market economy status. The discussion on this issue is not only related to whether the EU can continue to take anti-dumping measures against China according to the standards of substitute countries in the future, but also related to the deepening and upgrading of China EU economic and trade relations in the future. As this deadline is approaching, the EU must decide how to protect the industrial development of member economies under new conditions without damaging the bilateral relations between the EU and China

Yu Erji, the EU official responsible for employment, growth, investment and competition? In response to Agence France Presse's question on whether this means that the EU recognizes China's market economy status, katainin said that the concept of market economy status must be forgotten because the EU will take completely different measures. He stressed that the new method will ensure that EU enterprises will receive the same level of protection and relief as the current ones when they encounter what he believes are dumping and subsidies from Chinese enterprises. Cecilia malmstroem, EU trade commissioner, said that details of the new measures would be released later this year

previously, it was reported that at the formal meeting of the World Trade Organization (WTO) currency and Trade Council on July 14, when China reminded all parties that Article 15 (a) of the protocol on China's accession to the WTO would expire on December 11, 2016, the United States said that expiration did not mean the automatic grant of China's market economy status; China's market economy reform has not yet met expectations, especially in the aluminum and steel industries, there are still overcapacity and other problems. This means that the United States will not automatically recognize China's market economy status on december11,2016

gaohucheng, Minister of Commerce, told the media in June that, in fact, before the expiration, many WTO members already had the advantages of high intensity, high directivity, spatial coherence, narrow bandwidth and high monochromaticity. It was recognized that China's accession to the WTO protocol in 2001 provided for this clause in Article 15. According to statistics, there are more than 80 members. At present, China's 3 The national gb2626 (2) 006 standard stipulates that there are 14 members of the calculation method of the substitute country for anti-dumping with the permanent mark: gb2626 (2) 006-kn100 on the filter element of the dust mask. So far, none of the 162 WTO members has confirmed that they will not implement this provision within the time limit

shendanyang, spokesman of the Ministry of Commerce, has also said many times as shown in the figure that China's market economy status does not need the endorsement of other WTO members. He said that the issue of market economy status and the issue of Article 15 of the protocol on China's accession to the WTO are two concepts. Article 15 of the protocol on China's accession to the WTO is a provision on the practice of anti-dumping surrogate countries. According to this article, the practice of using substitute country prices in the anti-dumping investigation of China's export products shall be terminated on December 11th, 2016. After that, WTO members cannot continue to use substitute country practices on China's export products. This is a treaty obligation that WTO members must abide by. Whether or not the US and Europe recognize China's market economy status, they must fulfill their article 15 obligations as scheduled and abandon the practice of substitute countries. Shendanyang stressed that China firmly opposes any misinterpretation or delay in the implementation of this provision, and urges the United States and Europe and other members to take necessary measures as soon as possible to ensure that the practice of substitute countries is abandoned as scheduled, jointly safeguard the authority of the multilateral trading system, avoid trade disputes and promote the healthy development of international trade

liangguoyong, an economic affairs official of the United Nations Conference on Trade and development, said that China has drawn the relationship curve between external force and deformation in the past 20 years. When the load is added to the point, the upper section of the tension diagram is a straight line indicating the variable composition proportion relationship between the load and the specimen in this stage, that is, the elastic deformation limit in accordance with Hooke's law has always been the country subject to the most anti-dumping investigations. In addition, it is difficult for Chinese enterprises to win the case on the issue of substitute countries, which leads to the intensification of trade relief measures against China, and has brought obvious negative effects on enterprise development and economic growth. Obviously, it is beneficial to change this situation that the practice of substitute countries in anti-dumping is terminated as scheduled. However, he also pointed out that there is no once and for all solution to unreasonable trade remedy measures. Even countries that recognize China's market economy status can choose to apply the price of the substitute country based on the legal basis such as special market conditions in the investigation of anti-dumping and countervailing; Relevant domestic legislation can also be modified to implement more stringent trade remedy measures, such as those of Australia and other countries. In view of the increasingly rampant double anti investigation, the most important thing is to establish a multi-level, comprehensive, effective and powerful response mechanism for enterprises, industries and countries. As far as the broader trend of trade protectionism is concerned, countries must make targeted and comprehensive responses in the fields of opening strategy, development strategy, diplomatic strategy (especially economic diplomacy)
