The Chinese Ministry of Commerce (Mofcom) has extended the anti-dumping and anti-subsidy duties on imports of solar-grade polysilicon from the European Union by 18 months. However, Mofcom’s minimum price agreement with Wacker Chemie, the only important polysilicon manufacturer in the EU, remains in place, which exempts the company from any punitive duties.
