Total jobs at risk if EU grants MES to China
|Low impact*||High impact*|
* The low-impact scenario assumes granting MES to China would increase manufacturing imports from China by 25 percent over the next three to five years relative to their base level in 2011; the high-impact scenario assumes a 50 percent increase in imports from China.
** Subtotals may not add up to total due to rounding.
