ORAL QUESTION H-0930/05

for Question Time at the part-session in November 2005

pursuant to Rule 109 of the Rules of Procedure

by Ilda Figueiredo

to the Commission


  Subject: Problems in the footwear industry

 Answer in plenary 

As is well known, the footwear industry is currently undergoing grave problems thanks to international trade liberalisation. This is primarily affecting those Member States with more fragile economies, including Portugal, some of whose northern areas are now running the risk of high unemployment and the blockage of their development, as the author of this question has recently witnessed. A particularly grave factor has been the removal of quotas on imports from China, one of whose most visible results has been a fall in average import prices of approximately 50%.

 

Can the Commission state what action it is taking on the matter, especially with regard to the European Footwear Industry Confederation's request for an anti-dumping inquiry?
