  • Detail

China reiterates its firm opposition to carbon tariffs. Yao Jian, spokesman of the Ministry of Commerce, reiterated yesterday (15th) that China is firmly opposed to imposing carbon tariffs. He also said that developing countries have made great efforts in undertaking environmental protection and resource utilization. If the carbon tariff policy is introduced, it may lead to trade retaliation from developing countries

Yao Jian made the above statement when answering questions at the regular press conference of the Ministry of Commerce. He pointed out that carbon tariffs violated the relevant policies of the WTO and were inconsistent with the principle of "common but differentiated" undertaken by developed and developing countries as proposed by the United Nations Convention on climate change

Yao Jian pointed out that behind this measure, there is a certain tendency to implement trade protectionism by taking advantage of environmental and resource problems. The implementation of this policy will harm the interests of developing countries

Yao Jian also revealed that U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke and Energy Secretary Steven Chu will visit China, and the issue of "carbon tariffs" will certainly appear in their talks with China. In addition, promoting China US high-tech trade cooperation and the Doha Development Agenda negotiations will also be important topics of the talks

in response to the "Rio Tinto" case, Yao Jian said that the case will not affect China's foreign trade and foreign investment environment, nor will it affect China Australia trade relations. The Ministry of Commerce will also support the China Iron and Steel Industry Association and international iron ore suppliers to continue negotiations. At the same time, Yao 2, should take high material temperature, high model Wen Jian also said that no Ministry of Commerce officials were involved in the "Rio Tinto" case

on June 22, to prevent iron tools from melting in electrolytes for a long time, the U.S. Clean Energy Security Act was passed by the house of Representatives. The act stipulates that the United States has the right to impose carbon tariffs on drilling and processing of imported products for countries that do not implement carbon emission reduction quotas, including China. The act has been implemented since 2020
