EU Trade Commissioner Pascal Lamy announced that the EU and China reached an agreement in which China will export at least 4.5 million tons of coke in 2004, the same amount it exported in 2003. The EU planned to lodge a complaint at the WTO if China did not agree to hold coke exports steady in 2004. EU officials said that coke export licenses will be granted without delay and that China and the EU will work to eliminate the export license system by the end of the year. China exported 60% of the world's coke in 2003 but export quotas were cut by 26% in 2004 from 12 million tons to 9 million tons, prompting EU complaints.
