Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to attempt to better understand the reasons for the dramatic reduction in the estimated potential gains to China from participation in global trade reform, and to consider the implications and some trade-policy options for China in the post-accession situation. To do this, we first examine the reforms associated with ChinaÂ’s accession to the WTO. Then, we consider the implications for China of potential future trade reforms beginning from the situation where all of ChinaÂ’s WTO accession commitments have been phased in.
