EU shoe probe

站西城网-鞋业新闻】 China views a European Union dumping probe into Chinese safety shoes as the first of many, but hopes to reach a deal similar to one hammered out on textiles last week, said government and industry officials Thursday.

European Trade Commissioner Peter Mandelson said Wednesday he would open an investigation into whether Chinese exports of reinforced shoes were being sold in Europe at prices below production cost.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao, asked about the investigation at a regular news briefing, said, "On the question of footwear, we hope we can reach an understanding or an agreement just like we did on the textile issue.''

Su Chaoying, general secretary of the China Leather Association, said exports of such shoes made up only a small part of the country's overall footwear shipments.

"But we regard it as a signal that the EU will carry out anti-dumping investigations against other kinds of shoes in a few months,'' Su said.

Officials with China's Commerce Ministry declined to comment on the investigation but said the ministry could issue a statement later. The EU's executive arm said last week that imports of six categories of Chinese footwear in the first four months of 2005 had jumped 681 percent from a year earlier, with shipments of some shoes soaring more than 1,000 percent.

Su disputed those figures, saying China's shoe exports to the EU in the first three months were only 30 percent higher in value and 2.8 percent higher in quantity than a year earlier.

``The EU is discriminating against our exported shoes because they think our exportation has ruined their industry and employment, but we think it is inevitable,'' Su said.

``The EU should focus on high value-added products and brand design while we focus on fabrication.

``We can be complementary in the international market. But the EU doesn't think so.''

Last week, Mandelson reached an 11th-hour agreement with China to limit increases in 10 kinds of textile exports to between 8.5 and 12 percent a year until 2007.

Li Yushi, vice director of the International Trade Research Institute under the Commerce Ministry, said the EU textile deal could provide a model for solving the shoe dispute.

``Ultimately, the two sides will probably reach an accord, with both sides giving a little, such as in the dispute over trade in textile products,'' Li said. REUTERS
