The World Trade organization(WTO) released an appellate body report on the dispute case of China appealing against the American tariff act amendment(GPX legislation) on July 7.


Spokesman of the Chinese Ministry of Commerce Yao Jian made a statement, saying that the appellate body rejected the US appeal, while supporting China’s claim on double remedy, believing that the US Department of Commerce broke WTO rules by not adjusting the tax which can avoid double remedy in its 25 investigations of anti-dumping and anti-subsidy toward China from 2006 to 2012. China welcomes the report.


Yao said that the United State passed the American tariff act amendment on March 13, 2012 and traced and authorized its investigation agency to levy anti-subsidy duty on so-called “non-market economy countries”since November 20, 2006. The Chinese side thought this seriously violated the WTO principles of transparency and due procedure. China believed that the adjudication of the appellate body is in line with China’s position.


Yao indicated that although the appellate body was not able to complete the legal analysis about whether the American tariff act amendment conformed to Article 10.2 of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade in 1994, the Chinese side thought that the tracing application was obviously inconsistent with the obligations of the United States in the WTO. China urges the United States to revoke all the anti-subsidy measures against Chinese products before the passing of the American tariff act amendment.
