JinkoSolar Holding Co. Ltd., a solar power product manufacturer based in China, has followed other Chinese manufacturers and issued a critical statement on the trade petition filed by SolarWorld and other U.S. manufacturers last week against China.
‘We are currently in the process of reviewing the petition that was filed,’ says Kangping Chen, CEO of JinkoSolar. ‘The petition was filed by multiple solar power manufacturers in the U.S. and does not reflect the position of the U.S. government.
‘We will respond in accordance with [International Trade Commission] and [Department of Commerce] guidelines,’ he continues. ‘As a global company listed on the NYSE, we are confident in our position and are well prepared to substantiate our strict adherence to fair international trade practices.
‘Until the issue is resolved, we will continue to work with our customers and partners to ensure that our business is conducted as usual,’ Chen adds.
