Brussels – February 15, 2016
On February 15th, a manifestation against Market Economy to China – MES – took place in Brussels thanks to the organisation by EUROFER – the European Steel Industry association. CONEBI and EBMA representing the EU Bicycle Industry – attended the manifestation together with the representatives of other EU Industry sectors such as the Ceramics, Aluminium, Solar Panels, FerroAlloy, Glass Fibre and many more. At the moment China is not a Market Economy because it does not fulfill the EU’s five technical criteria in order to be recognised as such. Any unilateral decision by the EU to grant MES to China would be irreversible and detrimental for the EU manufacturing base.
