China tightened trade regime in 2009: US report

The United States saw additional evidence in 2009 that China was moving toward a more restrictive trade regime, but talks with Beijing also produced concrete results, U.S. trade officials said on Tuesday.

"China continued to pursue industrial policies in 2009 that seek to limit market access for non-Chinese origin goods and foreign service suppliers," the U.S. Trade Representative's office said in an eighth annual report on how well China is complying with its World Trade Organization obligations.

"In some areas, it appears that China has yet to fully implement important commitments, and in other areas, significant questions have arisen regarding China's adherence to ongoing WTO obligations, including core WTO principles."
