Too early to grant Market Economy Status to China

31 July 2015 / IndustriAll- European Trade Union in a Policy Brief explains that "... it would seem to be too early today to grant MES to China. Indeed, granting MES to China when it does not meet the technical criteria to be considered a market economy would be devastating for a number of manufacturing sectors in the EU as the possibility to impose anti-dumping measures on cheap Chinese imports would then largely disappear. The emphasis should be on creating a level playing field between the EU and China where workers do not fall victim to unfair trade practices."
