On 1st March 2023, the European General Court dismissed in its entirety Jushi Egypt’s court challenge of the anti-subsidy measures on imports of continuous filament glass fibre products originating in Egypt. The court specifically confirmed that the European Commission is allowed under EU law to consider that subsidies granted by the Government of China could be attributed to the Government of Egypt and therefore countervailed in an investigation of imports from Egypt.
“This is a great news for our industry which has been under extreme pressure due to the unfair trading practices of Chinese operators. This Court decision helps to ensure that these measures will continue to contribute to a level playing field on the EU market, which is paramount to the survival of our industry and the resilience of its value chain“, declares Cédric Janssens, Glass Fibre Europe, Secretary General.
The judgement of the General Court is available below.
