Probably not even Deng Xiaoping, who envisioned China’s economic opening, could have foreseen the real impact that two decades of Chinese membership in the World Trade Organization (WTO) would have.
China’s opening up to world trade changed everything – the world and China itself.
This special report will show the reader just that, from various angles, with explorations of the topic ranging from the context of WTO accession to how China is now addressing vaccine shortages in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
The last 20 years have seen so much change in international trade, that today China will be a decisive player in any reform that might take place within the WTO.
P.S.: This special report features exclusive contributions from leading experts on world trade issues. Along with Professors Chao Wang and Rostam Neuwirth of the University of Macau, we hear from one of China’s foremost experts, Xinquan Tu, and an authoritative voice from Taiwan in Roy Lee. Our thanks to everyone involved, including Dmitry Grozoubinski, Executive Director at the Geneva Trade Platform.
