Non-EU rail equipment imports affect competitive conditions for EU suppliers

Non-EU rail equipment imports affect competitive conditions for EU suppliersA surge in low-cost EU imports of rail supplies such as engines or signals from non-EU countries, including China, is skewing competitive conditions for EU suppliers, Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) warned on Thursday, adding that much of this surge is due to strong political and financial support in exporters’ home countries. Parliament calls on the EU Commission to craft “a coherent EU trade strategy, which ensures compliance with the principle of reciprocity, particularly in relation to Japan, China and the USA.”

“These practices may constitute unfair competition which threatens jobs in Europe”, says the resolution, which was passed by a show of hands.

MEPs also ask that future EU trade agreements and revisions of existing ones should include “specific provisions which significantly improve market access for the European Rail Supply Industry (RSI), especially with respect to public procurement”.
