China: scrap surrogate country method

CHINA yesterday urged other members of the World Trade Organization to abandon the surrogate country method when calculating anti-dumping measures against Chinese exports.

Ministry of Commerce spokesman Shen Danyang said China will take measures to defend its rights if members continue the old practice in anti-dumping probes into Chinese products after its expiration date.

Under the surrogate country method, WTO members use costs of production in a third country to calculate the value of products from countries on its “non-market economy” list, which includes China. The practice allows countries to easily levy high tariffs.

In accordance with Article 15 of the accession protocol signed when China joined the WTO in 2001, the surrogate country approach expires tomorrow. Shen urged the countries to meet their WTO obligations.
