Government Reference Publication

Excerpt
Excerpt: Like the prior reports, this report is structured as an examination of the nine broad categories of WTO commitments undertaken by China. Throughout the report, USTR has attempted to provide as complete a picture of China?s WTO compliance as possible, subject to the inherent constraints presented by the sheer volume and complexity of the required changes to China?s trade regime and transparency obstacles. USTR notes areas where progress has been achieved and underscores shortcomings as appropriate, not only with regard to the commitments that became effective upon China?s accession, but also the commitments scheduled to be phased in during this past year.
