Thursday, April 14, 2011
12:00 PM - 02:00 PM
American University Washington College of Law,
International Student Lounge
4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC



China's accession to the WTO in 2001 was a culmination of a long and contentious process. China's Protocol of Accession is noteworthy for its detail and length as it reflects the unique position of China within the multilateral trading system. What has happened during the past decade? What should we expect going ahead in the next decade? How has China affected the WTO and vice versa? Were these effects predicted? What has been the effect of the WTO accession on China internally? What has been the impact of China’s membership in the WTO on other nations? What are the issues of concern today regarding China’s trade practices that were not of concern in 2001 for the international community? What are issues of concern for China? How has the Chinese attitude or perspective on the WTO changed in the past decade?
