China and Subsidies

China and Subsidies

China’s economic growth plan is based on promoting exports at all cost, regardless of legality. To accomplish this, the Chinese government provides massive subsidies to many of its industries to allow them to produce goods for export at an artificially lower cost.

For example, the Chinese government holds down the cost of fuel and electricity, which makes the cost of industrial production lower. The government also provides free land and utilities to companies in key economic sectors, limits competition by regulating distribution of products, hands out free to low-cost loans to favored companies and whole industrial sectors, and utilizes many other methods of promoting its export industries at the expense of those who play by the rules. China needs to be held accountable for these illegal trade practices. AAM has been thoroughly examining and exposing China’s practices because it is crucially important to ensure all products traded in the international marketplace enjoy fair and equitable treatment.
