Due to the importance of the EU market, Chinese photovoltaic enterprises feel an unprecedented crisis

on July 26, Yingli, Suntech, Trina Solar and Atlas officially issued a joint statement on behalf of the photovoltaic power generation promotion alliance and China's photovoltaic industry, strongly calling on the EU to seriously consider launching an "anti-dumping" investigation against China photovoltaic, and calling on the Chinese government to actively protect the legitimate rights and interests of domestic enterprises and strive to prevent the EU from filing a case

subsequently, the four major photovoltaic enterprises announced that they would stop work for one hour on August 2 to protest the EU's plan to impose anti-dumping duties on Chinese photovoltaic products. However, the shutdown plan, which is expected to exceed 10000 people, was finally stopped by the relevant management and failed to take place

Chen Zhuo, assistant president and legal director of Yingli, also said: the Ministry of Commerce called Yingli last weekend to inform China that it had received the EU photovoltaic case note, and called Yingli and representatives of Suntech, Trina Solar and Atlas photovoltaic enterprises and anti-dumping lawyers to hold an emergency meeting on September 4 to discuss countermeasures
