Complaint by China

On 4 April 2018, China requested consultations with the United States concerning certain tariff measures on Chinese goods which would allegedly be implemented through Section 301-310 of the US Trade Act of 1974.

China claimed that the measures appear to be inconsistent with:

  • Articles I:1 and II:1 (a) and (b) of the GATT 1994; and
     
  • Article 23 of the DSU.

On 13 April 2018, the United States requested the Chair of the DSB to circulate to Members a communication where it indicated that the United States was willing to enter into consultations with China, without prejudice to the US view that China's letter of 4 April 2018 did not satisfy the requirements of Article 4 of the DSU. On 25 April 2018, China requested the Chair of the DSB to circulate to Members a communication responding to the United States' communication of 13 April 2018. While disagreeing with the US view that China's letter of 4 April 2018 did not satisfy the requirements of Article 4 of the DSU, China indicated its willingness to schedule a mutually convenient date for consultations within the scope of China's request.
