European Commission Presents Video on E-Bike Anti-Dumping Measures Against China Imports
BRUSSELS, Belgium – It is most likely related to the fact that the EU is becoming more conscious of the need to raise awareness on imposed policies. The Brexit problems probably contributed to this. Fact is that the European Union is presenting a video explaining the why and how of the anti-dumping measures in force since January of this year on the import of e-bikes from China.
In the introduction to this video the EU says: “Electric bicycles (e-bikes) are a faster and greener mode of transport for people of all ages. From 2016, bicycle companies across Europe began to struggle to compete with massive e-bike imports from China. These cheaper e-bikes, arriving on the EU market en masse, threatened to wipe out 90,000 jobs in Europe in just a few years.
“Alerted by European bicycle manufacturers, the European Commission investigated the exports from China and the state of the industry in Europe. In the space of a few months, the EU’s investigation teams had collected enough evidence to prove that imported e-bikes were being sold at an unfair price on the EU market. Meet the EU trade investigators, customs officers and companies that made sure Chinese e-bike importers played by the rules.”
