La Cina ha dimensioni continentali sia per quanto riguarda la superficie sia per quanto riguarda la popolazione. Le cifre che la coinvolgono sono quindi a livello continentale.

Nei fatti, la quota di 1.85 milioni di tonnellate di acciaio inossidabile importata  non dovrebbe avere grande rilevanza, esattamente come la tassa anti – dumping, che spazia dal 18.1% al 102.1%.

Il problema più che industriale è politico.

Intanto, Unione Europea, Indonesia, Giappone e Sud Korea si sarebbe fatte paladine di un commercio corretto, ma produrre e vendere in dumping, ossia sottocosto, è proprio tutto fuorché cosa corretta.

Il messaggio dovrebbe allora risultare nella sua chiarezza.

Non si può montare in cattedra e cercare di fare la morale agli altri, e poi essere pescati a commerciare scorrettamente.

Non si può soffiare sul fuoco ad Hong Kong ed aspettarsi che i cinesi se ne stiano inerti.

L’economia cinese ha assunto adesso dimensioni tali da essere in grado di porre in campo contromisure che potrebbero anche essere molto dolorose.


Reuters. 2019-07-22. China to impose anti-dumping tax on stainless steel from Indonesia, EU, Japan, South Korea

BEIJING (Reuters) – China said on Monday it will impose anti-dumping duties on some stainless steel products imported from the European Union, Japan, South Korea and Indonesia.

Anti-dumping tariffs of 18.1% to 103.1% will be applied to stainless steel billets and hot-rolled stainless steel plates from companies in the EU and the three Asian nations, effective July 23, China’s Ministry of Commerce said in a statement.

The decision follows an anti-dumping probe in July last year after a complaint filed by state-owned Shanxi Taigang Stainless Steel (000825.SZ).

“The investigation agency has made a final decree that there was dumping of the investigated products and it has caused substantive damage to the industry in China,” said the commerce ministry in the statement.

Stainless steel billets and hot-rolled stainless steel plates are mainly used as raw material to make cold-rolled stainless steel products or used in shipbuilding, containers, rail, power and other industries.

China, the world’s largest stainless steel producer, churned out 26.71 million tonnes of stainless steel products in 2018, up 2.4% from a year ago, according to China’s Stainless Steel Association.

The country imported 1.85 million tonnes of stainless steel products last year, up 53.7% from 2017.
