9 Tariff reductions and competitive situation Generally, imported western made products or locally by western/joint-venture companies made industrial equipment products have been of higher quality, but also more expensive than genuine Chinese made products Often there have been two markets divided by the price gap Tariff reductions have therefore played a more significant role in the competition between foreign companies (importers/local operators) as such than between foreign and Chinese

10 Problem areas noted prior to China´s accession trade names, brands product design technology transfer

11 Customs tariffs for typical Metso´s products in China before / after / year of impl. machinery for making pulp, paper, paperboard 8.4 % 8.4% - other machinery for making pulp … 6.0 % 6.0 % - machinery for rock crushing, screening … 10.4 % 5.0 % 2004 valves (pressure-reducing, check, safety …) 10.0% 5.0% 2004

12 Expected positive effects of accession of China to the WTO on Metso´s business abolishment of state subsidies to non-profitable industrial companies will lead to large scale modernization of pulp and paper mills, mines and construction activities - more business machinery and equipment business will become simpler due to fewer Chinese bodies linked to individual deals business contracts will become clearly specified and items valued separately: hardware, know-how, guarantees, training, technical support

13 Possible negative effects of China´s WTO accession harmonized taxation of foreign and domestic companies will abolish the tax incentives enjoyed by foreigners in certain areas tax levels will obviously rise in general to meet state budget needs; when new tax forms are developed foreign owned companies are likely to be in target areas financing might at least in the short run become even more difficult due to turbulance in the banking sector

14 Conclusion on effects of tariff reductions - in Metso´s case No major change in competition situation, because - most western competitors also producing in China - in case of big projects of national interest (like big pulp and paper mills) Chinese customers have often received customs duty exemptions anyway However tariff reductions make generally business more effective and transparent supporting a genuine market economy
