BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Commission agreed on Wednesday to impose punitive import duties on solar panels from China, two EU officials said.

The EU duties, which will come into effect by June 6 once the Commission publishes the decision in its Official Journal, will be set at an average of 47 percent, the officials told Reuters.
