China appeals dispute over flat-rolled electrical steel with U.S. to WTO

07-21-2012 03:48 BJT

BEIJING, July 20 (Xinhua) -- The Ministry of Commerce announced Friday China has made an appeal to the World Trade Organization (WTO) over its anti-dumping and anti-subsidy case involving imports of grain-oriented flat-rolled electrical steel (GOES) from the United States.

The announcement came after the WTO published a dispute panel report on June 15 this year, which the ministry said has not made proper ruling in the case, according to a statement on the ministry's website.

"We have found errors in both the legal matters and lawful interpretations in several aspects in the panel report after we have made serious studies of the report," an official at the ministry said.

The dispute panel has not properly interpreted relevant regulations and factually assessed the case concerning "price impacts", the statement said.

The ministry decided to launch anti-dumping and anti-subsidy duties on U.S. GOES imports on April 10, 2010. The United States had filed a consultation request with the WTO over the case on Sept. 15, 2010.
