Published 12 February 2019 | 1 minute read

The United States Trade Representative (USTR) released a report, titled “2018 Report to Congress on China’s WTO Compliance”. The USTR reports annually to the congress on compliance by China with commitments made in connection with its accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO).

The report analyses China’s record of compliance with WTO rules. It describes China’s continued embrace of a state-led, mercantilist approach to the economy and trade. In addition, it presents detailed analysis of China’s trade regime from a WTO perspective and explains numerous policies and practices pursued by China that disadvantage or harm U.S. companies and workers.


The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) is responsible for developing and coordinating U.S. international trade, commodity, and direct investment policy, and overseeing negotiations with other countries.
