US to levy 5% tariff against China-made solar products
Nuying Huang, Taipei; Jackie Chang, DIGITIMES [Friday 23 March 2012]
The US government announced recently a 5% tariff on China-made solar products. The tariff is considered low. Nevertheless, the industry has been concerned about whether or not Europe will take on similar investigations against China-based solar firms.
China-based media reports noted that applications for such an investigation to take place in Europe may be handed to the government at the end of March. If an investigation in Europe begins, business for China-based solar module makers will be hit hard.
The solar market in Europe has been the biggest customer for China-based solar module firms.
