    The WTO is also a centre of economic research and analysis: regular assessments of the global trade picture in its annual publications and research reports on specific topics are produced by the organization. Khor argues that developing countries have not benefited from the WTO Agreements of the Uruguay Round and, therefore, the credibility of the WTO trade system could be eroded. The Ministerial Conference can take decisions on all matters under any of the multilateral trade agreements. China will take innovation as the primary driving force for development. Only through equal consultation and joint efforts can win-win results be achieved for all.

    Continuously improving the legal system of socialist market economy. Confronted with unprecedented difficulties and challenges including the global financial crisis inChina has taken effective measures to stabilize and revitalize its foreign trade. Unilateralism goes against the law of the market and international rules, causes injury to others but ends up defeating oneself. As a developing country, China has actively participated in plurilateral liberalization initiatives and made important contributions to relevant talks. China firmly observes and upholds the WTO rules, and supports the multilateral trading system that is open, transparent, inclusive and non-discriminatory.

    Substantially widening market access for foreign investment China has adopted a foreign investment administration model of pre-establishment national treatment plus negative list. These efforts will ensure that technological development and innovation benefit not only China, but also the world, and its convenience readily accessible to more and more people. The consequences of the WTO's serial failure to get its member countries to agree on virtually anything in recent years is already inflicting a heavy toll on the global economy. The WTO members are required to publish their trade regulations, to maintain institutions allowing for the review of administrative decisions affecting trade, to respond to requests for information by other members, and to notify changes in trade policies to the WTO. The WTO is responsible for monitoring national trading policies, handling trade disputes, and enforcing the GATT agreements, which are designed to reduce tariffs and other barriers to international trade and to eliminate discriminatory treatment in international commerce. According to the World Intellectual Property Organization, 51, patent applications filed from China through the Patent Cooperation Treaty were accepted insecond only to the US.

The World Trade Organization book

The finger of blame for the WTO's hapless record of agreement is often pointed at developing countries such as India, which now stands alone in thwarting a deal struck in Bali, Indonesia, to eliminate customs red tape.

To increase transparency and facilitate trade, China has reduced unnecessary trade restrictions. China also actively defended the cases against it, respected the WTO rulings, and made adjustments to its measures according to WTO rules.

Martin Khor[ edit ] Martin Khor argues that the WTO does not manage the global economy impartially, but in its operation has a systematic bias toward rich countries and multinational corporations, harming smaller countries which have less negotiation power.

Although this seems simple enough, Narlikar shows some surprising ramifications of the "present at the discussion" rule. Continuously strengthening law enforcement on IPR protection. Jul 04, Frank Stein rated it really liked it Again these Oxford "very short introduction" books show their worth.

Fulfilling commitments on trade in services Extensively opening up the services market. After accession, China faithfully fulfilled its commitments to slash customs duties on automobiles.

Promoting balanced development of trade China pursues a trade strategy of mutual benefit, win-win, diversification and balanced development.

In specific circumstances, governments are able to restrict trade. The multilateral trading system is a historic choice that follows the trend of global economic development. Moreover, China will lift foreign equity caps on airplane manufacturing of trunk airliners, regional jets, utility aircrafts, helicopters, drones and lighter-than-air aircrafts.

No negotiation, mediation, or resolution would be possible without the foundational WTO agreements. The main function of the organization is to help producers of goods and services, exporters, and importers protect and manage their businesses. Only a common set of rules makes global trade fair for every country, large or small.

China has become a major stabilizer and driving force for the world economy.

Criticism of the World Trade Organization

China is making efforts to steadily liberalize its financial sector, constantly open up the services industry, and deepen the opening-up of agricultural, mining and manufacturing sectors. Economic globalization has powered global growth and is an irreversible trend of our times. Fulfilling commitments on trade in goods Substantively reducing import tariffs.

Repeated attempts to revive the talks proved unsuccessful, [41] though the adoption of the Bali Ministerial Declaration in [42] addressed bureaucratic barriers to commerce. Azevedo lamented that as trade negotiations migrate away from the WTO to the TPP and other regional deals, the biggest losers will be the world's smallest and weakest economies.

The core of the book is the section on the legal framework of the WTO, which contains detailed legal analyses of the GATT and each of the specialized WTO agreements, as well as a discussion of the institutional framework of the WTO.

When the agreements were finally proposed, many Third World nations who had no input into the discussion were forced to acquiesce out of ignorance.
