The WTO is under threat, will they step up?

Chinese Ministry of Commerce on Wednesday in a statement said "The Chinese party will have to adopt further measures in line with provisions on the Foreign Trade Law in order to compensate for the damage inflicted by the U.S. activities and protect its legal rights and interests". The members who have filed requests for consultations so far include Canada, China, the EU, India, Mexico, Norway, Russia, and Switzerland.

Hua said that since 2002, China's annual average contribution to world economic growth had been close to 30 percent.

The Chinese government chose to join the organization because it firmly believes integration into economic globalization is in line with the historical trend and that promoting free, open trade leads to mutually beneficial and win-win results, according to the spokesperson.

The Trump administration hit China with tariffs on $34 billion worth of goods earlier this month.
