EU steel industry and capital workers marched to protest China dumping Sohu news-t6570

The European steel industry both sides took to the streets to protest China "dumping" – Sohu News Reference News Network February 16 news media said, about 5000 steel workers in February 15th from EU countries held demonstrations in the Belgian capital Brussels, to protest from China cheap steel, and warned EU leaders not to recognize Chinese’s market economy status, so as not to let the situation deterioration. According to voice of America radio website reported on 16 February, the owners of the steelworks also joined the demonstrations to protest China said, "subsidy" exports of steel, iron and steel enterprises to make Chinese sells for less than the cost of steel products prices, which led to the EU steel industry present crisis. According to the report, the steel industry from the 28 member countries of the European Union believes that if the market economy status of China is recognized, more Chinese steel exports will be allowed to the EU, and tens of thousands of EU countries will lose their jobs. Analysts say global steel demand has not recovered to the level before the financial crisis. Some economies, especially China’s economic growth is still weak, so global steel demand in 2015 fell by 1.7%, is expected to increase by 0.7% in 2016. At the same time, steel prices in the global market dropped sharply. On the other hand, China’s economic growth is slowing and domestic demand is saturated, forcing China to look for export markets abroad. Reported that the European Commission announced in February 12th, China exported to the EU’s three kinds of steel launched a new anti-dumping investigation. On the same day, the European Commission announced that anti-dumping duties should be levied immediately on cold rolled steel products exported to the EU by China and russia. According to the French radio international website on February 16 Daily said, from France demonstrators, steel industry employees Bruno Coquenard believes that the French steel industry jobs are threatened. Thirry Malot, the employer of the French steel industry, said the demonstration sent a clear signal to the European commission. Mr. Bruno Coquenard said, "we are very worried, very worried. China’s steel products are flooding our market, and our steel products are sold out." Mr. Thirry Malot said, "do you still want to keep industry on our land?" This is the problem for Europe, and Europe is a whole block. Europe still has steel production, but without prices, prices have fallen too badly. China’s production is so large that it can meet all the needs of europe." According to Deutsche Telecom ‘s website 16 in February, China’s affluence and economic growth depend mainly on a large number of small and medium enterprises, especially the private sector in the service sector. The private sector is the key to China’s transition to a consumer society in the next few decades. The situation of large enterprise groups is quite different: for example, in the heavy industry, banking and infrastructure industries, the important enterprises are state-owned enterprises. Reported that the EU’s important economic lobby group warned: "if the European Union formally recognized China’s market economy status, Chinese Enterprises – which include the state; 欧盟钢铁业劳资双方上街游行 抗议中国“倾销”-搜狐新闻  参考消息网2月16日报道外媒称,来自欧盟各国的约5000名钢铁工人2月15日在比利时首都布鲁塞尔举行示威,抗议来自中国的廉价钢材,并且警告欧盟领导人不要承认中国的市场经济地位,以免让局势恶化。   据美国之音电台网站2月16日报道称,钢厂业主也加入了示威队伍,抗议人称,中国“补贴”出口钢材,让中国钢铁企业得以以低于成本的价格出售钢铁产品,从而导致了欧盟各国钢铁行业的目前的危机。   报道称,来自欧盟28个成员国的钢铁行业认为,如果承认中国的市场经济地位,便是允许更多中国钢材出口到欧盟,数万欧盟国家的工人将因此丢饭碗。   分析人士称,全球钢材需求还没有恢复到金融危机之前的水平。一些经济体,特别是中国的经济增长依然疲弱,因此全球钢材需求2015年下降1.7%,预计2016年增加0.7%。与此同时,全球市场钢材价格大幅度下滑。另一方面,中国经济增速放缓,国内需求饱和,迫使中国到国外寻找出口市场。   报道称,欧盟委员会2月12日宣布,对中国出口到欧盟的三种钢材展开新的反倾销调查。欧盟委员会同一天还宣布,立即对中国和俄罗斯出口到欧盟的冷轧钢钢材征收反倾销税。   另据法国国际广播电台网站2月16日报道称,来自法国的示威者、钢铁业员工Bruno Coquenard 认为,法国钢铁业的就业岗位受到威胁。法国钢铁业的雇主Thirry Malot则认为,这次示威向欧盟委员会发出了明确的信号。   Bruno Coquenard先生说:“我们非常担心,非常担心。中国的钢铁产品充斥了我们的市场,我们的钢铁产品已经销不出去了。”   Thirry Malot先生则说:“还要不要在我们的土地上继续存留工业?对于整个欧洲,都是这个问题,欧洲是一个整块。欧洲仍有钢铁生产,但是没有价格了,价格跌得太惨了。中国的产量如此之大,它可以满足欧洲所有的需求。”   据德国之声电台网站2月16日报道称,中国的富裕及经济增长目前主要依靠大量的中小型企业,尤其是服务行业的私营企业。中国要在今后几十年内完成向消费型社会的转型,这些私营企业正是关键所在。而大型企业集团的情况则大不相同:比如重工业、银行业和基础设施行业中,重要企业都是国有企业。   报道称,欧盟内部重要的经济界游说团体警告说:如果欧盟正式认可中国的市场经济地位,中国企业-其中恰恰包括国有企业-就可以更为容易地进入欧洲市场。游说者们担心,中国产廉价商品将打击欧洲本地产品,并导致工作岗位流失。   中国政府并不同意这样的说法。中国经济部发言人沈丹阳2016年1月20日在谈到相关问题时表示,“我们也注意到,近期一些欧盟行业组织不断渲染取消‘替代国’的做法会给当地的就业和经济发展带来所谓的巨大‘负面影响’。”沈丹阳说,“我们认为,这些观点仅代表部分行业利益,欧方全面客观的政策决定不能以此为依据,毕竟多边贸易体系是建立在规则基础之上的,以任何借口不履行国际义务,都将对多边贸易体系造成损害。”   报道称,欧盟委员会此前已经多次因“倾销”而对中国的钢铁产品征收惩罚性关税。最近一次是2016年1月底,欧盟宣布向中国产高强度HFP钢筋产品征收9.2%至13%关税,为期半年。此外相关欧盟机构还在针对中国产品展开多项反倾销调查。  相关的主题文章:
