We will continue to work together to deliver industry leading solutions."  Mr. Gao concluded, "We will continue to cooperate with the European Commission's investigation, and use evidence to defend our position that these duties are unwarranted and serve as an impediment to the broader adoption of solar energy as a sustainable energy source. We urge all parties involved to seek a mutually beneficial solution through consultation and negotiation. As a forward-thinking global company, we will continue to deploy options to most effectively serve all of our solar markets." Ben Hill, President of Trina Solar Europe, added, "Trina Solar is disappointed with the European Commission's preliminary conclusion, as we disagree that we have dumped imports into the European market.
