  • Current views of the EU’s stance on China’s Market Economy Status
    • Possibilities of change in this stance by the December 2016 deadline
  • Potential special methodologies that could be used if China is recognised as a Market Economy
    • How will that work in reality
  • How to navigate with China after the decision has been made as a producer? As a user of products?
  • Developing a plan B as a local producer if China’s anti-dumping duties are lowered
