Statement about the 'funeral march'
Milan Nitzschke, President of EU ProSun about today's 'funeral march' by AFASE:
"The so-called funeral march financed by AFASE – a lobby group of Chinese companies and their importers – is extremely tasteless. It is a slap in the face for those thousands of European solar workers who have lost their jobs due to Chinese dumping. AFASE is systematically misleading European installers by claiming that their jobs are at risk. The United States introduced anti-dumping duties against Chinese solar cells and modules over a year ago and nobody lost their job. On the contrary, the market is booming in the United States today, and more people are working in the American solar industry than before tariffs were introduced. Moreover, the volume of dumped imports from China fell, and the American solar industry was saved from destruction."
