Chapter 4: Handling of WTO disputes: China’s experience

Enabling Developing Countries

Amrita Bahri

Extract

Chapter 4 provides readers with an analysis of different dispute settlement strategies employed by the government and industries in China. The combination of China’s expanding foreign trade, its developing nature, the evolution of its dispute management approach and the legal and institutional transformations it has undergone to enforce its WTO rights has made China a very interesting case study from the perspective of this book. The chapter provides readers with answers to the following pertinent questions: 1. How has China strengthened its WTO DSU participation? 2. What have been the benefits of engaging the private sector in the intergovernmental process of WTO dispute settlement? 3. What has been the nature and extent of dispute settlement partnership arrangements formed in China? In other words, how have the industries and the government exchanged resources during the management of trade disputes? 4. Are there any problems with China’s dispute management approach that might impede the formation and functioning of effective PPP arrangements? If so, what are these problems? Which features have cost-effectively enhanced China’s dispute settlement capacity, and which ones have been ineffective or problematic? Can any of its capacity-building features be viably considered by other developing countries?
