WTO panel largely rules against China in steel duties dispute
[GENEVA] A World Trade Organization dispute panel largely ruled against China on Friday in a case brought by Japan and the European Union to challenge Chinese anti-dumping duties on high performance seamless stainless steel tubes.
Japan brought the complaint in December 2012 to object to China hampering firms such as Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corp from selling the tubes, which are used in coal-fired power plants.
The European Union, home to exporters such as Spain's Tubacex SA and Germany's Salzgitter AG, joined the case against China in June 2013.
