Brussels – May 12, 2016

A group of 70 Members of the European Parliament, led by Edouard Martin, David Borrelli and Emmanuel Maurel, launched a stakeholders consultation on 15th March on whether Market Economy Status (MES) should be granted or not to China: results have been recently published and show that out of 6,000 responses, 91% is against granting MES to China.
Moreover, on 12th May, 84% of the European Parliament voted a resolution against the automatic granting of MES to China which states: “China’s overcapacity is already having strong social, economic and environmental consequences in the EU, as demonstrated by its recent detrimental impact on the EU steel sector, in particular in the United Kingdom, and the social impact on EU jobs of granting market economy status to China could be substantial.’ You can find the resolution at the following link.
