Overview：China and Europe reached a "friendly" solution to the photovoltaic trade dispute, which avoided a full-scale showdown, the largest trade dispute in EU history, averaging about $20 billion annually. The resolution of the crisis has enabled both sides to sit down calmly and examine their own industrial policies.
China and Europe reached a "friendly" solution to the photovoltaic trade dispute, which avoided a full-scale showdown, the largest trade dispute in EU history, averaging about $20 billion annually. The resolution of the crisis has enabled both sides to sit down calmly and examine their own industrial policies.
Industry insiders believe that as far as China's photovoltaic industry is concerned, there is an urgent need to reflect on its lack of technological innovation, industrial planning, market misestimation and blind expansion.
The dispute shows that the manufacturing equipment, raw materials and market in China's photovoltaic industry are "three heads out", relying on foreign subsidies to maintain high profits, can not withstand the wind and grass, and should be alarmed for a long time. In the future, China's photovoltaic industry must upgrade and adjust its industry, eliminate low-end and backward capacity, and enhance its core competitiveness by improving its technological level.
At the international level, a major feature of the post-financial crisis era is the "low-carbon economy" war. Major countries are focusing on developing low-carbon technologies based on clean energy. If photovoltaic disputes cannot be settled "amicably", China and Europe will inevitably lose and lose. This means not only the losses on Trade and industry books, but also the obstacles to clean energy cooperation between China and Europe.
Clean energy has been sniped by the European debt crisis in the past two years. Some EU member states have cut or even terminated subsidies to related industries due to high debts. The photovoltaic industry is particularly under pressure. This is also the origin of the photovoltaic case - some EU companies and people hope to pass on these pressures by pushing the EU to impose extremely high tariffs on Chinese photovoltaic products.
But shifting pressure and anxiety may not necessarily benefit the EU. The European Solar Energy Industry Association, the Par Solar Alliance, argues that the real source of the difficulties faced by EU photovoltaic companies is the reduction of subsidies for grid-connected solar energy prices by member countries, rather than competition from China.
Moreover, photovoltaic products account for 7% of China-EU trade. Some institutions measure the gains and losses of the EU, and if disputes cannot be resolved, the costs and jobs that the EU may lose will be no less than those of China. It is no wonder that the EU's dual-opposition proposal has won the approval of only four member states, but has been opposed by 18 Member States and protested jointly by thousands of EU photovoltaic enterprises.
Not only that, once the city gate caught fire, it was not only the fish in the ponds of Central Europe that would be affected. In the current economic downturn in Europe, China is in urgent need of technical support for industrial upgrading, and the world is trying to find a way to solve the economic crisis. If China and Europe fight a trade war because of the photovoltaic industry, it will destroy the global confidence in clean energy development. This is because both China and Europe are key players in the global climate change response framework. The cooperation between the two sides in the field of clean energy is of great significance to the global response to climate change.
