CHINA'S PARTICIPATION IN THE WTO

Edited by Henry Gao and Donald Lewis

China’s Participation in the WTO brings together the most insightful contributions from the International Conference on China’s Participation in the WTO hosted by the East Asian International Economic Law and Policy Program (EAIEL) at The University of Hong Kong in February 2005.

The work focuses on three general themes: taking stock of the progress China has made in implementing its WTO commitments, identifying the challenges facing China as a new Member in the WTO, and generating proposals on how China could participate in the WTO more effectively.

The contributions capture the intensive discussions held among speakers from the Ministry of Commerce of China, the Permanent Mission of China to the WTO, members of the WTO Secretariat, leading academics from around the world and WTO experts from leading professional services companies and multinationals.

Henry Gao is Deputy Director of the East Asian International Economic Law and Policy (EAIEL) Program, the Academic Coordinator for the  Asia Pacific Regional Trade Policy Course jointly organized by the WTO and the University of Hong Kong.

Donald Lewis is Director of EAIEL and Associate Professor at the University of Hong Kong. His research focuses on China’s WTO accession, Administrative governance in China and Dynamics of cultural and economic development.
