China anti-dumping investigation on Australian wine

25 August 2020 |Horticulture
China announced on 18 August 2020 that they have launched an anti-dumping investigation into Australian wine exports.

China’s Ministry of Commerce announced they will look at whether Australian winemakers “dumped” bottles of wine at deliberately low prices in order to crowd out local producers and claim a bigger market share. The investigation is expected to last 12 months, concluding in August 2021.

Australian Trade Minister Simon Birmingham also added that China had warned they may launch a second investigation into whether Australian wine exports were benefitting from government subsidies.

This announcement follows the imposition of increased tariffs on Australian barley exports to China resulting from an earlier anti-dumping investigation and the suspension of access for four Australian meat processors on the basis of labelling issues.
