Professor Webster testifies before Congress regarding WTO - China
Professor Timothy Webster, Assistant Professor of Law and Director of East Asian Legal Studies at Case Western Reserve University School of Law testified before the Congressional-Executive Commission on China. In discussing ongoing Chinese implementation disputes with the World Trade Organization, he summarized China's track record and offered suggestions on how the U.S. may more effectively respond to China's implementation challenges. "China has become an increasingly sophisticated WTO litigant and now more willing to use DSB (Dispute Settlement Body) procedures to minimize the effects of adverse rulings," Webster said during his testimony. "Once decisions have been rendered, China is not necessarily willing to implement those decisions as quickly as we might like."
