China News Agency, Beijing, February 5th. According to the official website of the Ministry of Commerce of China on the 5th, some media asked: The US photovoltaic global safeguard measures (201 measures) will expire on February 6, 2022.

According to the recommendation of the US International Trade Commission, the US government announced on February 4 that the measure will be extended for four years.

What is the comment of the Ministry of Commerce of China on this?

  The head of the Trade Remedy and Investigation Bureau of the Ministry of Commerce said that in the past 10 years, the United States has adopted a number of trade restrictions on imported photovoltaic products.

This time, the US government insisted on extending the 201 measures despite the strong opposition of relevant parties at home and abroad, which not only does not help the healthy development of the domestic industry in the United States, but also distorts the normal international trade order of photovoltaics as a new energy product.

  The person in charge said that photovoltaic products are important clean energy products, and their increasingly widespread application is helpful to effectively deal with climate change and is of great significance to achieving the greenhouse gas emission reduction goals of various countries.

At present, the urgency and importance of climate change and clean energy transition have become increasingly apparent. China is willing to continue to uphold the spirit of cooperation and work with other countries to promote low greenhouse gas emissions, climate-resilient and sustainable development.

It is hoped that the United States will take concrete actions to jointly address climate change, promote global free trade, maintain the rules-based multilateral trading system, facilitate free trade in new energy products, and contribute to the global development of a low greenhouse gas emission economy and the promotion of the common well-being of all mankind. contribute.
