China 'deeply concerned' by US solar ruling

SHANGHAI - China said it was "deeply concerned" about a preliminary ruling by a US trade body that trade practices by Chinese solar makers are hurting US producers and said the decision underscored a US "inclination to trade protectionism".
Such protectionism measures would hurt bilateral trade and jeopardize mutual cooperation on new energy issues, the Commerce Ministry said in a statement on its website.
The statement came after the US International Trade Commission approved an investigation into charges of unfair Chinese trade practices in the solar energy sector, setting the stage for possible steep US duties and ratcheting up tensions with Beijing on the green trade front.
