The decision by DG Trade to continue to hold in place a tariff on Chinese energy saving light bulbs is a foolish one.
It seems that only German light bulb company Osram wanted to keep the tariff. I hope that the tariff will be lifted and soon. It makes no sense for the European Commission to keep a tariff in place when they are trying to encourage European consumers to save energy.
It is also bad economics.
I hope that the tariff will be voted down by member states within the month.
