Taiwan’s Growing E-Bike Export to EU Triggers Questions on Local Content Rules
TAIPEI, Taiwan – Taipei Cycle 2019 which took place last March, made abundantly clear that there’s a turnaround taking place in Taiwan. The island’s industry is turning to e-bikes and their export to the EU. It’s prompted by the anti-dumping duties now in place for e-bikes exported from China to Europe. It blocks many of the Chinese e-bike exporters and with that offers opportunities for Taiwan makers. But it also raises questions on the rules set by the EU on origin and local content.
