Alternate Title: 2021 USTR Report to Congress on China's WTO Compliance

From the Document: "This is the 20th report prepared pursuant to section 421 of the U.S.-China Relations Act of 2000 [...], which requires the United States Trade Representative (USTR) to report annually to Congress on compliance by the People's Republic of China (China) with commitments made in connection with its accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO), including both multilateral commitments and any bilateral commitments made to the United States. [...] In Part One of this report, we provide an assessment of China's WTO membership, including the unique and very serious challenges that China's state-led, non-market approach to the economy and trade continue to pose for the multilateral trading system. In Part Two, we review the effectiveness of the various strategies that have been pursued over the years to address the unique problems posed by China. In Part Three, we emphasize the critical need for new and more effective strategies - including taking actions outside the WTO where necessary - to address those problems. Finally, in Part Four, we catalogue the numerous problematic policies and practices that currently stem from China's state-led, non-market approach to the economy and trade."
