U.S. government efforts to ensure China's compliance with its World Trade Organization (WTO) commitments require a sustained and multifaceted approach. To provide Congress with an update on these issues, GAO (1) discussed the key findings, conclusions, and recommendations from our recently issued work on China-WTO issues and (2) updated the Commission on a number of ongoing GAO reviews on China trade and economic issues. The observations are based on a series of reports initiated at the bipartisan request of various congressional committees. That work has included an analysis of China's commitments, surveys and interviews with private sector representatives, and the results of two annual assessments of the U.S. government's compliance efforts. Additionally, our work on China- WTO issues included fieldwork in Washington, D.C., China, and at the WTO headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.
