China files WTO challenge to US tariffs on solar panels:The Asahi Shimbun

The spokesperson also said that U.S. subsidies for its own domestic PV manufacturing were giving its industry an "unfair competitive advantage and damaged the legitimate rights and interests of China's renewable energy companies".

China officially filed a complaint with the World Trade Organisation (WTO) on Tuesday, claiming that the solar import tariffs imposed by the U.S. and its subsidies for local products harm China's legitimate rights and interests and clash with WTO rules. USA officials say such action is necessary because the WTO lacks the ability to address Chinese trade tactics.

The Trump administration in January announced it was imposing "Safeguard tariffs" over four years, with a 30 percent tariff in the first year reduced gradually to 15 percent in year four.

"While taking safeguard measures against imported PV products", the spokesperson continued, "the USA side provides additional subsidies to renewable energy products such as photovoltaics manufactured in the country, which are suspected of forming import substitution subsidies and violating national treatment obligations". "Other Countries should not be allowed to come in and steal the wealth of our great United States of America. This act of abuse of safeguards not only harms the legitimate rights and interests of the Chinese side, but also affects the seriousness and authority of the WTO rules". "We urge the USA side to take practical action, respect WTO rules and abandon its wrong practices, to bring the trade of related products back to normal".
