WASHINGTON DC – Deputy U.S. Trade Representative Karan Bhatia affirmed the Bush Administration’s determination to strengthen and improve trade ties with China
Bhatia testified before the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Trade exactly one year after the Administration presented a Top-to-Bottom Review of U.S. Trade Policy with China. That report noted that both countries have benefited from China’s economic transformation but concluded that the two countries had entered a phase of their relationship that that will focus on bringing more balance and equity to their bilateral trade ties.
In his prepared testimony before the Subcommittee, Bhatia presented specific examples of how the Administration is acting on the steps outlined in the Top-to-Bottom Review. The text of that testimony is attached.
