Unfair competition and state negotiations on Chinese Solar Panel trade
Dumping on prices and state subventions from the Chinese state is the accusation of the western powers in the case of the Solar panel trade. Many American and European solar panel manufacturers had gone bankrupt due to the fierce competition from Chinese imports. A settlement is much waited from all participants since a trade war between the two blocks will be detrimental for both. In particular the price of Polysilicon the basic raw material for solar panel exported from the West could be taxed in a retaliatory move so that loses could be equally incurred thus creating the vicious circle of a trade war.
