EU countries back measures to limit steel imports
BRUSSELS - Reuters
“This is intended to prevent the negative effects of trade diversion, but at the same time maintain traditional supply and effective competition on the EU market,” the spokesman said.
The quota would be a reflection of imports over recent years, with a 25 percent tariff set for volumes exceeding that amount, according to sources familiar with the proposal.
The main exporters of steel to the EU are China, India, Russia, South Korea, Turkey and Ukraine.
