Why China cancel so many kinds of steel products to tax rebates?


Low-carbon economy, eliminating outdated production capacity is the main target.


Steel is a high-carbon product. The abolition of the tax rebate can reduce domestic steel production relatively, achieve the purpose of energy-saving and consumption reduction, and can alleviate the purchase of iron ore by domestic steel mills, and reduce domestic iron ore mining, thus protecting domestic resources. It seems very terrible for many export suppliers. But in the long run, it is very good for sustainable development in China. The introduction of the above-mentioned adjustment measures is considered to be an important measure to reduce China's dependence on imported iron ore and promote the structural transformation of the steel industry. It is conducive to expanding the import of steel resources while supporting domestic steel companies to reduce crude steel output and guiding the steel industry to reduce. Total energy consumption to promote the transformation and upgrading, and high-quality development of the steel industry.


At the same time, due to the reduction in steel exports and the reduction in output, small steel mills with relatively backward levels can be squeezed, so the abolition of the steel export tax rebate is also very beneficial to the country’s integration of domestic steel mills.
