Shandong shoe enterprises focus on Japan, South Korea and Russia to avoid impact

on December 30, 2009, the European Commission reviewed the final decision and decided to continue to impose anti-dumping duties on leather shoes and boots imported from China and Vietnam, and to continue to impose 16.5% anti-dumping duties on the products originated in China and re exported from Macao (whether or not originating in Macao) for 15 months. However, as the export focus of our province’s shoe enterprises is Japan, South Korea and Russia, we have avoided this wave of shock< 1t is understood that in order to protect the interests of shoe-making enterprises in some southern European countries, the EU has imposed an anti-dumping duty on leather shoes and children's shoes made in China since October 2006, with a tax rate of 16.5%. On Octobe3, 2008, although the European anti dumping Advisory Committee voted 15:12 against it, the European Commission still insisted on launching a review investigation. On November 19, 2009, this proposal was rejected again by the EU anti dumping Advisory Committee by a 15:12 vote. But in the end, with the insistence of 1taly, Spain, some southern European countries and new accession countries, the EU decided to continue to impose anti-dumping duties on Chinese leather shoes this move has been opposed not only by China, but also by local European retailers, shoemaking enterprises and consumers. According to the calculation of the European footwear Union, which represents more than 2000 European shoe-making enterprises, since the EU imposed anti-dumping duties on Chinese leather shoes in October 2006, the average price of leather shoes in the EU market has increased by more than 10%. By extending the anti-dumping measures against Chinese and Vietnamese leather shoes to 2011, European consumers and enterprises will lose hundreds of millions of euros western shoe enterprises suffer little from Shandong enterprises an anti-dumping duty order has a great impact on China’s export products. Statistics show that Wenzhou, an important Chinese shoemaking City, exported 23.09 million pairs of EU genuine leather shoes in 2006, and dropped sharply to 9.2 million pairs from January to September 2009″ 1n fact, the main target market of the Western shoemaking industry represented by 1taly is obviously different from that of China and other Asian regions. The former is mainly aimed at the middle and high-end market, while the latter is mainly aimed at the middle and low-end market, with no direct competition at all. ” Xu Yong, vice president of China Light 1ndustry Federation, said publicly “fortunately, the impact on our enterprise is not great. Our export focus is Japan, South Korea, the United States and Russia, and our export to the European Union is relatively small. Because the location of the whole Shandong region is close to South Korea, South Korea and Russia, and the export structure is closer to South Korea and Russia, compared with southern shoe enterprises, especially those in Wenzhou and Guangdong, the impact is negligible. ” Yue Guowei, deputy general manager of golden monkey group, said GAO Luguang, Secretary General of Shandong Leather Association, also said, “the export focus of leather shoes in Shandong Province is not in the European Union, and the impact is very small. Labor protection shoes are more exported to the EU than leather shoes. ” Gao Luguang revealed that Wenzhou was the hardest hit area of the EU’s anti-dumping duties due to Zhejiang businessmen doing more business in Europe
