The Ministry of Commerce urged Argentina on to abide by World Trade Organization rules over anti-dumping investigations on five Chinese products.
China is concerned by measures taken by Argentina against Chinese products, according to Wang Hejun, head with the trade remedy investigation department with the MOC.
Argentina launched anti-dumping investigations on December 7 local time on Chinese PMMA plate, multifunctional food processing machines, metal protective screening, household dishwashers and steel pipes.
Argentina initiated 11 anti-dumping investigations against Chinese products this year, the highest number in Latin America, according to Wang.
China has been advocating a prudent, restrained and regulated approach in trade remedy measures which should be strictly in line with WTO rules and implemented in a fair and transparent manner, Wang said.
China hopes Argentina will abide by WTO rules and will protect Chinese companies' rights to appeal against such measures, Wang added.
