Policy Brief 51, September 2018

US Claims under Special Section 301 against China Undermine the Credibility of the WTO

The US action to place China in the Special 301 ‘Priority Watch List’ is unjustified and in contravention to the WTO rules. The claims made against China are based on standards self-determined by the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR), not on international standards. This is an example of a systemic problem that requires a concerted response. WTO members should unite to firmly oppose the imposition of unilateral measures that undermine the multilateral trading system and the credibility of WTO as a ruled-based institution.

US’ Section 301 Actions are Illegitimate and Misguided

This is in addition to the additional tariffs imposed on 6 July 2018 on US$34 billion of its imports from China.
