During this period, Hebei’s PV exports to Japan hit 2.7 billion yuan (440 million U.S. dollars), up 180 percent, while exports to the European Union and the United States dropped 38.6 percent and 9 percent respectively, due to anti-dumping policies.

In the first half of this year, China’s PV exports grew 14 percent to reach 7.4 billion U.S. dollars, according to Sun Guangbin, an official with the China Chamber of Commerce for import and export of machinery and electronic products.
During this period, China’s PV exports to Japan hit 2.4 billion dollars, making Japan the biggest importer of China’s solar panel products.
