    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    The opening on Monday of a Chinese probe into EU pork imports has caused concern for farmers who make a significant portion of their money from exports to China.

    Last week, the European Union slapped additional tariffs of up to 38% on Chinese electric car imports from next month following a probe of their own.

    China could have slapped a 25% duty on imports of gasoline-powered vehicles with large engines in the name of combating climate change, a step that would have hit Mercedes and BMW hard.

    In choosing not to do so, at least for now, the government may be acknowledging the public opposition of the German auto industry to the EU tariffs, as well as its sizeable production in China.

    Chinese officials have said the EU investigation into subsidies for electric vehicle production in China is “typical protectionist behaviour” that disregards WTO rules.

    The Spanish pork industry association Interporc said in a statement that it would “offer complete collaboration with Chinese authorities” and provide them with any documents they require.

    This is the third article I’ve read on this subject and not a single one has mentioned what dumping is allegedly occurring.
