Agriculture Minister David Littleproud

November 27, 2020

Agriculture Minister David Littleproud has expressed the Federal Government’s “extreme disappointment” with a decision by Chinese authorities to impose preliminary tariffs of between 107.1 per cent to 212.1 per cent on Australian wine.

“The fact is Australia produces amongst the least subsidised product in the world and provides the second lowest level of farm subsidies in the OECD,” Mr Littleproud said.

“Today’s decision is a seriously concerning development and one which Australia will be vigorously fighting against.

“The Australian Government categorically rejects any allegation that our wine producers are dumping product into China, and we continue to believe there is no basis or any evidence for these claims.

“We will continue to work with our wine industry and Chinese authorities as part of the ongoing dumping investigation, but we will of course consider all of our options moving forward.

“Australian wine is hugely popular both in China and across the globe due to its high quality and we are confident that a full and thorough investigation will confirm this.”
