European Union will eliminate anti-dumping measures on canned citrus in China
According to the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU), in data collected by Valenciaplaza.com, on December 12, 2019 the European Union will eliminate the anti-dumping measures that apply on canned citrus in China.
These measures prevent Chinese canning companies from selling their products in Europe below the prices they do in their own country.
Following This resolution, Chinese companies that send canned citrus to European countries will no longer have to pay tariff duty, ranging from 361 to 531 euros per tonne, according to Valenciaplaza.com, in their exports, balancing the costs of Production in relation to the products produced in Europe.
Spain and China, the main producers of canned citrus
According to Valenciaplaza.com, this media is especially important for Spanish citrus, since Spain (mainly Murcia and the Valencian Community) is, together with China, the world’s leading producer of canned citrus.
This re-opening of the importation of canned citrus Chinese will make Spanish companies that commercialize this product have very difficult to compete within this industry and will be a hit added to a sector that has gone down in recent years and that at present it is going through a very complicated time in Spain. This is confirmed by Enrique Bellés, technician of the ‘Federació of cooperatives Agroalimentàries‘ of the Valencian Community, the entity that promoted the application of the anti-dumping clause, in a statement to Valenciaplaza.com.
Against this measure, Spanish producers may submit allegations for reconsideration.
