China appeals WTO ruling on solar panel dispute with US

By: | at 03:01 PM | International Trade  

China has appealed against a WTO dispute panel report on anti-dumping duties applied on certain Chinese products by the United States, the World Trade Organisation (WTO) said.

The appeal covers products including solar panels, wind towers, thermal and coated paper, certain lawn groomers, kitchen shelving, steel sinks and cylinders, line pipes, and aluminium extrusions.

It was not immediately clear why China lodged the appeal. WTO judges in the case ruled last month that the United States broke its rules in imposing hefty duties on Chinese steel products, solar panels and a range of other goods that Washington argues enjoyed government subsidies. (Reuters)
