    Eurofer targeting ‘predatory’ pricing of Chinese steel

    Later this month Eurofer is to publish a study on the Chinese steel sector, accusing the Chinese government of illegal subsidies in an attempt to force the European Commission to take trade defence action.

    Due on the 24 February, the report is said to contain information on various subsidy schemes operating in China. Going beyond the publicly available statistics and data and presenting unverifiable information contributed by Chinese sources, Eurofer is attempting to demonstrate Chinese steel pricing policy as "predatory" and alert the European Commission of its disastrous impact on the European industry.
