China: Want to succeed in the WTO, Get Off the Defensive

I’m quoted in the China Daily and a special edition of the Beijing Review covering this year’s plenary session of the National People’s Congress in the lead article. The topic was the WTO, and I said that while it was pretty clear that the government was doing all it could to implement, it needed to communicate its challenges in implementation to manage the expectations of the rest of the world. The core challenge for China is that what IT sees as compliance, and what other parties would see as compliance, will be two different things unless it steps forward and establishes a defensible benchmark.
