Shuangquan He, Executive President of Wuxi Suntech, said, “Suntech, as one of the earliest China's PV module manufacturers entering the European market, has an extensive reputation. What's more, to further develop in Europe and provide more flexible service for customers, Suntech has formally applied to withdraw from MIP in August 2016. The EU formally accepted Suntech's withdrawal from MIP in October 2016. Suntech provides high-quality products for our European customers based on the local market price level in its overseas production bases.”
