European Parliament members ask for speed in trade case investigation

The plenary debate stated that the on-going investigations will look into the industry, market data and send its European Commission officials to inspect European and Chinese companies. The Commission has a maximum period of nine months to deal with each of the investigation. This requires the anti-dumping investigation to be concluded by early June and the anti-subsidy investigation by early August next year.

However, majority of the European Parliament members are calling for action to be taken before the nine month deadline. According to the press release by EU ProSun, this call for speed is due to the high number of insolvencies that have arisen in the last months this year. This, they see, as one way to save jobs in the European solar industry.
