CHINA PRESS: United States Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said Monday
that China represented an "unprecedented" threat to the world trade system, with
World Trade Organization rules inadequate to deal with the issue, the South
China Morning Post reported on Tuesday. "The sheer scale of their coordinated
effort to develop their economy, to subsidize, to create national champions, to
force technology transfers and to distort markets in China and throughout the
world is a threat to the world trading system that is unprecedented," the SCMP
quoted Lighthizer as saying at a speech in Washington. Lighthizer said that he
did not want to prejudge the USTR office's Section 301 investigation into
China's trade practices, but added that he was getting "an awful lot of
complaints" from U.S. companies that had to "hand over technology" to
joint-venture partners in China, the report said. Lighthizer's comments came
after China's Ministry of Commerce said Monday that it was starting a four-month
campaign to crack down on Chinese entities that violated foreign companies'
intellectual property rights -- one of the main issues of contention in the
U.S.-China trade dispute.
