Reaction To Administration’s Section 201 Case

SolarWorld reacts to President Trump’s remedy decision in Section 201 case

HILLSBORO, Ore., Jan. 22, 2017 – Today, President Donald Trump issued a determination on remedies in the Section 201 Global Safeguards trade case on behalf of the U.S. solar photovoltaic cell and panel manufacturing industry.  SolarWorld Americas Inc., the largest U.S. crystalline-silicon cell and panel producer for more than 42 years, was a co-petitioner with Suniva Inc. in that case. Juergen Stein, CEO and President of SolarWorld Americas Inc., today responded to President Trump’s decision with the following statement:

“SolarWorld Americas appreciates the hard work of President Trump, the U.S. Trade Representative, and this administration in reaching today’s decision, and the President’s recognition of the importance of solar manufacturing to America’s economic and national security.  We are still reviewing these remedies, and are hopeful they will be enough to address the import surge and to rebuild solar manufacturing in the United States.  We will work with the U.S. Government to implement these remedies, including future negotiations, in the strongest way possible to benefit solar manufacturing and its thousands of American workers to ensure that U.S. solar manufacturing is world-class competitive for the long term.”
