U.S. needs incentives to attract foreign solar firms -China's Longi

BEIJING, Feb 6 (Reuters) - The United States will need to offer incentives to attract foreign solar firms to invest there after U.S. President Donald Trump slapped steep tariffs on solar panel imports, a executive at Longi Green Energy Tech said on Tuesday.

Longi, one of China's top solar cell makers, won't give up on the U.S. market as a result of the move though, global marketing director Xia Aimin said at a briefing.

China is the world's biggest solar panel producer.
