Trade re­stric­tions pro­posed in US

China Daily (Canada) - - BUSINESS -

US In­ter­na­tional Trade Com­mis­sion on Tues­day rec­om­mended vary­ing quota and tar­iff re­stric­tions on im­ported so­lar prod­ucts, giv­ing US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump three choices to ad­dress the so-called “in­jury” to Amer­i­can so­lar man­u­fac­tur­ers. The com­mis­sion gave three rec­om­men­da­tions rang­ing from a four-year quota sys­tem with re­ced­ing tar­iff rates to im­port li­cense adop­tion. Trump will make the fi­nal de­ci­sion whether to pro­vide re­lief to the US in­dus­try and the type and amount of re­lief. In May 2017, two Amer­i­can so­lar man­u­fac­tur­ers, Su­niva and So­larWorld, filed a pe­ti­tion with the ITC un­der Sec­tion 201 of the Trade Act re­quest­ing high tar­iffs on im­ported crys­talline-sil­i­con so­lar prod­ucts and high min­i­mum price floors for im­ported so­lar mod­ules.
