Liaocheng carbon seamless steel pipe plant startup carbon seamless steel pipe carbon seamless steel pipe plant of Chinese action identified by the government subsidies
In March 15th, Chinese seamless steel tube industry association (seamless) to our reporter confirmed, the European Commission has identified Chinese government provide illegal subsidies to domestic carbon seamless steel pipe business.
"Financial Times" reported that, according to a report by the display, the European Commission accused the seamless steel tube Chinese government support domestic organic coating (used for construction and home appliances) producer, which is lower than the market price for raw materials.
This means that the second half of last year, the European Parliament initiative "seamless steel tube" prelude. Last December 13th, the European Parliament voted to approve a resolution, urging the European Commission to aid the carbon seamless steel pipe industry, the industry called "carbon seamless steel pipe action".
The European Commission "seamless steel tube" includes, EU state aid rules to take into account the needs of seamless steel tube industry, carbon seamless steel pipe plant concerns threatened, as soon as the promised action plan into practice, and consider whether 2013 will provide more free carbon emission quotas for the European seamless steel tube industry. This action is expected to be approved in June.
carbon seamless steel pipe, vice president and Secretary General Zhang Changfu expresses to our newspaper reporter, the European Commission report the conclusion is not based on, China export is decided by the market supply and demand, the EU local seamless steel tube enterprises can not meet the needs of the market from the China import, China carbon seamless steel pipe business did not cause damage to the EU carbon seamless steel pipe industry, while maintaining the interests of the EU downstream users.
Illegal subsidy dispute
Zhang Changfu thinks, the European Commission to identify and lack of according to the fair
The seamless steel tube industry accused China seamless steel tube plant was government subsidies long-standing, especially when the market downturn, "illegal subsidies" to become the European carbon seamless steel pipe business calls for maximum based on the anti dumping and countervailing measures to China carbon seamless steel pipe products.
Since last year, the European Union (Eurofer) seamless steel tube several times to the EU complaints, to promote the European market from behind China imported carbon seamless steel pipe products surge is Chinese government subsidies, this is not fair.
Last year, due to the European debt crisis continues to worsen, China slowing economic growth, the carbon seamless steel pipe falling demand, excess capacity has become increasingly prominent. According to the European Union statistics of carbon seamless steel pipe carbon seamless steel pipe, the annual capacity of about 2.1 tons, but the actual demand is only 1.5 tons to 1.6 tons, production capacity surplus reached 25%.
The main driving force of the European Commission "seamless steel tube" back from Arcelor Mittal (ArcelorMittal) and Thyssen Krupp (ThyssenKrupp), seamless steel magnate. Last year, the two companies apparent decline in performance. Among them, Thyssen Krupp 2011/12 fiscal year (October 1, 2011 to September 30, 2012) losses of 4700000000 euros, the company had to cut production, structural adjustment, and obtain a new strategic space and money by stripping some business, such as the sale of American Alabama carbon seamless steel pipe factory in Brazil and the slab factory, so as to obtain funds to invest with growth prospects in the field.
In addition, the EU after Chinese global second seamless steel tube production market, seamless steel tube industry accounts for 1.5% of the proportion of about GDP, 27 members in 23 countries of seamless steel tube industry occupies the important position of industry. Therefore, "carbon seamless steel pipe action" on the EU's importance is self-evident.
However, Zhang Changfu told this reporter that the carbon seamless steel pipe, the varieties Chinese market in Europe is not the lowest price, China seamless steel tube industry bear heavier taxation, and also generally face losses, the European Commission to identify and lack of according to the fair.
An executive in Liaocheng carbon seamless steel pipe plant group told reporters complained, "illegal subsidies" has been accused of foreign counterparts Chinese carbon seamless steel pipe business basis, "so many years has not changed in new words", and the accused not only for seamless steel tube industry, imports in Europe market share higher industry also faces a similar accusation.
These executives to further explain, in fact, products in the European China seamless steel tube plant prevent Arcelor Mittal and other European seamless steel giant price behavior, "at the end of last year, ArcelorMittal prices, but contributes to the advantage Chinese products in europe".
The overall effect of Co.
"Even if the (should) fail, impact on the domestic seamless steel tube industry will not be great."
The British "Financial Times" said, the European Commission recommended by imposing the highest anti subsidy tariffs on steel imports from 50% coating China. Last year, the European Commission is due to complaints, the Chinese carbon seamless steel pipe manufacturer imposed the highest temporary anti-dumping duties of 58%.
Zhang Changfu said, if the EU once again launched anti-dumping action, Chinese seamless steel tube industry will continue according to the principle of dealing with WTO.
"Even if the failure, impact on the domestic seamless steel tube industry will not be great." Zhang Changfu said, the European market although important, and the main export market is not Chinese, and demand remains in the doldrums.
From the customs data show, last year, due to falling demand in Europe and Southeast Asia seamless steel demand growth is rapid, Belgium, Italy or the top ten export countries list, the top ten seamless steel tube exporter no European nation.
Zhang Changfu further said, in the future, Chinese seamless steel tube industry will not be the European market as a key, and are not optimistic about the market outlook in europe. In addition, in fact, China overall government restrictions carbon seamless steel pipe exports, because iron ore prices are too high, a large number of export and can not bring to the long-term interests of domestic seamless steel tube plant.
But for individual enterprises, export business will be affected. At present, in the European market export business mainly include carbon seamless steel pipe carbon seamless steel pipe plant, Liaocheng seamless steel tube plant, etc..
The Liaocheng seamless steel tube plant management personage expresses to our newspaper reporter, not to further open up the European market, the export quantity present is completely determined by the supply and demand. "Although the current European carbon seamless steel pipe factory prices in favor of domestic carbon seamless steel pipe exports to Europe, but on the whole, exports decline in exports, to be reduced to a certain extent, the EU will lose a cause of action."
A few years ago, the European market downturn, Chinese exports plummeted, the carbon seamless steel pipe union withdrew to the anti-dumping appeal China cold-rolled plate.
