The Chinese Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) has issued a statement expressing its strong dissatisfaction with the ruling. Shen Danyang, spokesman for MOFCOM, has provoked a trade war hindering the development of green energy. He stated that this sends a negative message to the rest of the world.
Rather than encouraging global cooperation, the US Department of Commerce’s (DoC) final determination, demonstrates a protectionist nature, which will not aid the growth of the PV industry, deplored Danyang. MOFCOM chided the DoC by explaining that this decision would also harm the US raw materials industries and equipment exporters, as well as the interests of consumers.
Shen Danyang further pointed out that with China-US business relations deepening, he hopes the country will make an effort towards correcting its erroneous practice of terminating contracts early. The spokesman said the countries need to increase cooperation to promote green energy and economic development.
