GPEC Position Aligned with WTO Ruling on Tariffs
July 25, 2014

A recent ruling by the World Trade Organization affirmed the position the Greater Phoenix Economic Council held in 2012 opposing the countervailing duties placed on Chinese-manufactured solar panels.

The ruling by the World Trade Organization (WTO) counters the position taken by the International Trade Commission (ITC) in 2012, which imposed tariffs on Chinese-manufactured photovoltaic cells and modules.

“We are encouraged by the decision of the WTO, and are optimistic the US will move quickly to reverse its course on these tariffs,” said Barry Broome, president and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council.
