US Alleges That China Unfairly Helps Its Exporters

Wednesday, 11 Feb 2015 10:28 AM

The United States is challenging China at the World Trade Organization, alleging that the Chinese government unfairly subsidizes exports in seven industries.

The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative says that China designates certain export companies as "demonstration bases" that receive free or discounted services from suppliers. The U.S. says China paid the suppliers almost $1 billion over three years to provide those services.

Getting help are textile and clothing makers, advanced materials and metals companies, light industrial firms, specialty chemical manufacturers, medical product makers and agricultural firms.

The U.S. says the subsidies violate WTO rules.

"This unfair Chinese program is harmful to American workers and American businesses," USTR says.

The challenge arose from an earlier investigation into Chinese subsidies of auto and auto parts exporters.
