Engineering Industries demand an EU Trade Policy which focused on competitiveness, growth and jobs

Trade Defence Instruments

Orgalime is a proponent of free and fair trade. We are therefore not opposed to the use of trade defence instruments where this fundamental principle is breached. We do not however support the use of trade defence instruments, such as anti dumping, as a political measure, for example with a view to correcting imbalances in trade or strong competition.

Orgalime urges the Commission to pursue a trade policy which is in the Community’s whole interest and to not resort to counterproductive short term measures, in particular in cases where actions are based on preserving a captive market of some segments of industry to the detriment of a competitive and healthy market which are essential to the fostering of the innovative products and technologies which will guarantee the future of the EU as a strong manufacturing economy offering growth and jobs.
