Thousands march in Brussels against cheap Chinese steel imports

Thousands of European steelmakers descended on the EU capital Brussels on Monday  (15 February) demanding that officials do more to stop the flood of cheap imports from China.

Police said about 5,200 representatives from Europe’s struggling steel industry circled the EU’s Berlaymont headquarters demanding that China be denied market-economy status, an official designation that would make it harder to raise barriers against cheap Chinese steel products.
