Question for written answer E-006910-13
to the Commission
Rule 117
Nuno Teixeira (PPE)

 Subject:  The Chinese threat to EU wine exports
 Answer in writing 

Recently China reacted to new EU taxes applied to its solar panel exports by announcing an investigation that could lead to barriers to EU wines entering its territory.

The possible trade retaliation by China could affect the export of EU wines, and particularly Portuguese wines, just as income from exports to China has doubled in only two years to about EUR 11 million per year.

In 2012, the EU exported 257.4 million litres to China, representing about 11% of the total exports by EU producers and a total value of EUR 763 million, which shows this market is significant and has potential.

1. What is the current situation regarding China’s threat to retaliate by erecting barriers to EU wines entering its market?

2. How does the Commission foresee this situation developing?

3. What is the EU’s strategy with regard to China’s position and perspective on trade issues?
