BRUSSELS (AFP) - The European Union will on Friday begin imposing anti-dumping measures on some Chinese solar panels whose manufacturers rejected an amicable settlement.

The two-year measures will enter into force on Friday Dec 6, said the EU Commission, and will apply to those panels produced by Chinese manufacturers who rejected a settlement imposing minimum sales prices.
