China's Accession to the WTO

The issue of China's bid for membership at the World Trade Organization (WTO) is not only hotly debated among member countries within the organization, it has also become a U.S. foreign policy concern. While China has been making conscious efforts in the last decade to join the WTO, the United States has led its major Western allies to block China's accession to the organization, leaving a standoff in the decade-long negotiations. Each side has a strong case to make, but the solution, the author argues, lies in putting the accession issue in the broader context of U.S.- China relations. The author concludes that the U.S. should let China come in without further delay.
