Special feature: China's WTO Decade

Transparency and National Treatment under the Chinese Flag

A lawyer’s view of a decade of WTO membership and legal reforms
Hubert Bazin
p. 15-22

Abstract

Since 2001, China has, overall, respected the commitments it made when it joined the WTO. However, no “WTO spirit” has been observed that might have led it to go beyond the letter of these commitments, and very many non-tariff barriers are still in place. In view of the modernisation of its legal framework, is there room for improvements that would enable foreign companies to find their place more easily in a rapidly expanding market, or do structural obstacles stand in the way of the developments hoped for by its main partners?
