China has complained to the World Trade Organization about anti-dumping duties imposed by the European Union on shoes made in China. China says that the EU has “violated various obligations under the W.T.O., and consequently caused damage to the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese exporters.

Interestingly, the European Footwear Alliance agrees with China and says that that “ironically the measure hurts European business and consumers the most”.
