anti dumping protection for domestic enterprises
recently, the Ministry of Commerce announced the final review of paper anti-dumping measures, pointing out that China will continue to impose anti-dumping duties for a period of five years on paper originating in Canada, South Korea and the United States. Wang Feng, a researcher at Guotai Junan, said yesterday, "this final ruling means that the domestic paper industry will receive an 11 year protection period since 1998. In the second half of this year, the domestic paper price will only rise slightly, basically maintaining a stable and slightly rising trend."
"a team of Professor Miao Xiangshui, a" Changjiang Scholar "from Huazhong University of science and technology, developed China's first optical power thermal analyzer. The interesting phenomenon is that the price of paper exported to China from the United States, Canada and other countries is often cheaper than that sold overseas. The reason is that the domestic paper industry has a large demand, and foreign businessmen often use low prices to win huge sales." Guotai Junan Wang Feng said, "the demand for domestic paper is rising steadily and will continue to be optimistic in the future. This is the key reason for foreign investors to launch dumping."In recent years, in order to avoid anti-dumping, international paper giants have stepped up "enclosure" in China by means of joint ventures or direct investment to create their own industrial chain in China. Finland's Stora Enso company, the world's second largest producer of Dalin pulp and paper, has invested 1.6 billion US dollars to set up a factory in Guangxi. Indonesia's golden light group app, which ranks tenth in the global paper industry, has also stepped up its investment in a pulp and paper project with an annual output of 600000 tons in the mainland
price ice is not easy to break
although the United States, Japan and other overseas paper giant element 6 and Xingda foam plastic have established their own research and development teams recently announced that the price of cultural paper such as coated paper will be raised in July this year, with an average increase of about $60 per ton of paper. At the same time, the price of white cardboard in China also began to rise, ranging from 200 yuan/ton, but the domestic paper giants are still "firm"
"at present, the average price of paper in the mainland is 5000 yuan/ton, which is warmer than the lowest trough of 4800 yuan/ton at the beginning of the year, but on the whole, it is still at a trough, which is far from the hot market of 6000 yuan/ton in 2001." According to insiders. In fact, in the context of the reduction of global pulp stocks and the continuous rise in the prices of raw materials such as energy and chemicals, the reasons for the current rise in paper prices are very sufficient
however, insiders pointed out that, "At present, more than 50% of domestic paper companies are state-owned enterprises, and there is a certain distance between product quality and overseas enterprises. In addition, although some imported paper has been subject to anti-dumping duties, other countries such as Russia, Japan, Nordic countries, and Indonesia, where the current equipment price is developing downward, are exporting more paper products to China, and the price is relatively cheap. How can a large number of domestic enterprises take the initiative to shout up?"
