China is on a development path to become the world’s leading importer as well as the leading exporter of manufactured goods. The world’s leading market today is the United States, which also is the world’s leading exporter by value. In the twenty-first century, no trade relationship will be more important than between China and the United States.

China, despite its rapid development, remains a developing country that has embraced the international trade rules and disciplines of developed countries. There is inevitable friction and misunderstanding between developed and developing countries, especially over trade.

This blog is dedicated to exposure and critical discussion of the friction, the instances where China and the United States turn to the rule of law to settle their differences, and where they express their more philosophical and policy concerns on trade. It is also intended to be a forum to address misunderstandings. At this site, manufacturers, exporters, officials, and other interested persons will be able to find insightful commentary on this particular trade relationship, and on international trade more generally.

发展中的中国正逐步成为世界领先的制造品进口商和出口商。目前,美国仍是世界上最重要的市场;同时着眼于出口价值,美国的出口量仍位居世界第一。在二十一世纪,中美贸易无疑是世界上最重要的双边贸易关系。

虽然中国以令人瞩目的速度发展,但中国仍位居发展中国家行列,仍不断接收发达国家制定的国际贸易规则。毫无疑问,发达国家和发展中国家之间存在摩擦和误解,尤其是在贸易领域。

本网站旨在展示、深入探讨这些摩擦,中美双方如何利用法律解决争端,两国有关国际贸易的哲学、政策顾虑。同时,本网站也试图为研讨双边误解提供论坛。在本站,制造商、出口商、政府官员以及其他关注国际贸易的群体可找到有关当前中美贸易纠纷精辟的分析,同时也可找到关于国贸领域的其他重要事件的评论。
