Press Release: European glass fibre reinforcements industry welcomes launch of European Commission investigations into dumping by state-backed Chinese producers exporting from Bahrain and Egypt.

Axel Jorns, Secretary-General at GlassFibreEurope welcomed the announcement in the EU’s Official Journal today: “We strongly welcome the new European Commission investigation into the destructive dumping of state-backed Chinese producers exporting from Bahrain and Egypt. To address the surge of unfairly traded imports from those countries, GlassFibreEurope has asked the European Commission for the immediate registration of glass fibre reinforcement imports from Bahrain and Egypt, which would allow EU anti-dumping duties to be imposed retroactively to the date of registration. We are confident that the European Commission will make a thorough analysis and confirm the existence of dumping by imports from Bahrain and Egypt, which is injuring EU producers and destroying valuable manufacturing jobs, growth and investment in Europe. European downstream industries need a local, innovative and viable glass fibre reinforcements industry to compete internationally. If Europe loses glass fibre reinforcements manufacturing, key sectors from renewables to construction will be dependent on inputs from Chinese state-backed companies.”Read More
