USTR Releases 2018 Reports on China’s and Russia’s WTO Compliance

February 04, 2019

Washington, DC – As required by law, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative today released annual reports assessing China’s and Russia’s implementation of their respective World Trade Organization (WTO) commitments.

China and Russia present unique and serious challenges for members of the WTO and the multilateral trading system, largely because of their failure to embrace the pursuit of open, market-oriented policies, the U.S. Trade Representative said in the annual reports. China became a member of the WTO in 2001 and Russia joined the WTO in 2012.
