The Aluminum Association Statement on China’s Elimination of Export Duties Affecting Certain Aluminum Products

ARLINGTON, VA -- On May 1, the Chinese Ministry of Finance eliminated its 15 percent export duties on aluminum rods and bars (alloy and non-alloyed), and certain primary alloy.

The Aluminum Association believes that the elimination of these export duties is inconsistent with China’s policy to discourage exports of energy-intensive products, a key element of the country’s “new normal” that puts emphasis on sustainable, quality growth. The Association also sees this change as having the potential to encourage unfair trade practices in the aluminum industry.
