China launches anti dumping probe into EU pork imports: Report 

China has launched an anti-dumping probe into the imports of pork goods from the EU, AFP reported. 

Beijing said this is in response to an application given on behalf of domestic producers and comes against the backdrop of increasing trade tensions between the European Union and China, the newswire noted.

"The Ministry of Commerce has opened an anti-dumping investigation into the imports of relevant pork and pig by-products originating from the European Union," the Ministry noted in a statement. 

The company has condemned EU's decision to impose additional tariffs of up to 38% on Chinese electric cars next month, following an anti-subsidy probe, the newswire reported. 

The EU pointed to "unfair subsidisation" in China, noting that it was "causing a threat of economic injury" to EU electric car makers, AFP said. 

The European Commission has proposed provisional hikes of tariffs on Chinese manufacturers of 17.4% for BYD, 20% for Geely and 38.1% for SAIC. 

Beijing said the tariffs would "harm Europe's own interests". 

China had ramped up threats that Beijing could target EU exports, including those of dairy and pork goofs, ahead of the EV tariff decision.

The country also said last week that it "reservs the right" to file a suit with the World Trade Organization, over planned EU tariffs, AFP noted.
