The Chinese Government issued the China and the World Trade Organization (WTO) white paper on June 28 to highlight China's practices to fulfill its commitment, explain the principles and policies of its participation in the multilateral trade system and clarify the country's vision and action to promote higher-level opening up.
This is the first time that China has published a white paper on this issue as its contribution to global trade since its accession to the WTO has received positive remarks.
The white paper points out that China has firmly supported the multilateral trading system, participated in various WTO affairs and urged the organization to pay more attention to the concerns of its developing members. China has also opposed unilateralism and protectionism and worked with other members for the WTO to play a greater role in economic globalization.
According to the white paper, China has pursued a mutually beneficial and win-win strategy of opening up, followed the WTO free trade concept and fulfilled its responsibility as one of the major powers through opening itself to the world.
