On March 23, 2018, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry (India) made an announcement to terminate the anti-dumping investigation of solar PV products originated or exported from mainland China, Malaysia and Taiwan region. Partner Di Wang from East & Concord Partners and her team represented China’s PV industry in the injury defense and represented several enterprises to respond to the anti-dumping investigation.
The Ministry of Commerce and Industry (India) initially launched an anti-dumping investigation of PV products from mainland China, Malaysia and Taiwan region on July 21, 2017. Commissioned by China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Machinery and Electronic Products, Partner Di Wang represented China’s PV industry to make an injury defense for the entire industry. During the period, she submitted the preliminary industry injury defense opinion to India’s investigation authority, attended the public hearing in New Delhi, India on December 12, 2017, and submitted the industry defense opinion and a rebuttal to the prosecutor’s defense opinion after the hearing. At the phase when the final ruling was to be made, the prosecutor filed to revocate the prosecution. According to analyses in the industry, the investigation authority made an injury-free ruling after reviewing the prosecutor’s data and the content of industry injury defense. In the end, the investigation authority terminated the investigation because of the prosecutor’s withdrawal of prosecution.
This case marked another victory for partner Di Wang who represented China’s PV industry and won the anti-dumping case of PV modules and panels in Australia. In the retrial of anti-dumping of China’s PV modules and panels in Australia whose ruling was made on October 17, 2016, and in the original investigation of anti-dumping of China’s PV modules and panels in Australia whose ruling was made on October 6, 2015, Di Wang and her team represented China’s PV industry to make an injury defense, and both cases were closed injury-free.
