China challenges US at WTO

 China challenges US at WTO
Text size Aa Aa

China has lodged a complaint against the United States at the World Trade Organisation.

It wants the WTO to rule on US measures against imports of some Chinese high quality steel pipes, off-road tyres and laminated woven sacks.

The US Commerce Department claims that the Chinese are unfairly pricing or subsidising those products.

China said it turned to the WTO dispute settlement mechanism after bilateral consultations between Beijing and Washington failed to solve its concerns.
