 China: the United States 301 clause challenges the multilateral trade system accusation without basis.


China recalls that since the United States issued the clause 301 in 1974, 125 301 investigations have been launched, and many WTO members such as the EU, Japan, Canada, South Korea and Brazil have repeatedly been investigated, and some of them have been forced to open the market for American enterprises or become the targets for the implementation of retaliation measures in the United States. The office of the United States trade representative, based on the results of the 301 survey, proposed a tariff of 25% on imports of about US $50 billion imported from China in April 3rd, mainly involving information and communications technology, aerospace, robotics, medicine, machinery and other industries. China has already submitted a consultation request to the US side under the framework of the WTO dispute settlement mechanism on the 4 day of the United States tax proposal under the 301 investigation. The Chinese side said that unilateralism in the United States has seriously damaged the WTO foundation and placed WTO at an unprecedented risk. China appeals to WTO members to make joint efforts to counter American protectionism. At the meeting that day, Pakistan and Russia also expressed grave concern about the possible impact of the US side on the global trading system. The so-called 301 survey comes from the 301st Trade Law of the United States in 1974. The provision authorizes the United States trade representative to investigate the unfair or unfair trade practices of other countries and to recommend the president of the United States to impose unilateral sanctions after the investigation. The survey was initiated, investigated, ruled and implemented by the United States itself, with strong unilateralism.
