上海419Top negotiators from China and the United States will meet in Shan
ghai on Tuesday and Wednesday for the first time since President Xi Jinping and his US coun
terpart Donald Trump agreed in June to resume economic and trade consultations. 上海419女神会所
Analysts said that holding the 12th round of talks in Shanghai, the c
上海419ountry’s financial hub, will help the US have a more direct understanding of China — a nation
that is determined to further open up. Previously, the trade talks in China took place in Beijing.
Ministry of Commerce spokesman Gao Feng said that holding the negotiations in different plac 上海419女神会所
es is not unusual. “Shanghai has good conditions for conducting consultations,” Gao said. 上海419
The meeting is expected to implement the consensus reached between the top leaders of both
上海419女神会所countries at the G20 Summit in Japan last month, Gao said at a regular news conference.

Washington’s countervailing measures on Chinese imports violate body’s laws
The United States has challenged the authority of the World Trade Organization by ignoring a上海419
WTO ruling, and such a move may escalate trade tension with China, experts said on Wednesday.
上海419品茶微信The WTO announced on Tuesday that the revised countervailing measures imposed by t
he US on imports of certain products from China were inconsistent with WTO laws.
However, the US failed to comply with the WTO ruling and上海419
accused China of “using State-owned enterprises to subsidize its economy”.
上海419The WTO mechanism is what members use to settle trade disputes, and countries in most cases abide by the rulings made by th
e organization, said Xue Rongjiu, deputy director of the China Society for WTO Studies.上海419品茶微信
“If member economies don’t follow this procedure, the rule-based global multilateral system
will be damaged and threatened by protectionism,” Xue said, adding that under such circumstances, some
上海419members may be forced to also use trade as a geopolitical weapon to ensure their interests.
Upholding the findings of a WTO dispute panel made public in March 2018, a WTO appellate body ruled that the US acted inc
onsistently with its provisions of subsidies and countervailing measures agreement.上海419品茶微信
The Ministry of Commerce urged the US to take immediate and concrete
action to “correct the wrong practices” in the anti-subsidy investigation against China and to c
上海419reate a fair and stable international trading environment for companies from both countries.
“Although both the panel of experts and the appellate body in this case
have ruled that the US countervailing measures violate WTO rules and asked the US to c上海419品茶微信
orrect its action, the US didn’t comply with the WTO ruling and continued to adopt tra上海419
de remedy measures against Chinese products in recent years,” the ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.
