U.S. "prevails" at WTO over China
On Friday, the U.S. won a case at the World Trade Organization (WTO) regarding steel wire exports to China.
At Daily Kos, Laura Clawson said the U.S. "has prevailed in a trade dispute with China" and that the WTO recognized that China had "acted inconsistently" by imposing anti-dumping duties on American steel products.
Clawson quoted a statement from the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM):
"This ruling shows that getting tough on trade cheating pays dividends—it will save jobs in America," Scott Paul, executive director of the Alliance for American Manufacturing, said. "Kudos to the Obama administration for enforcing the law and successfully defending the decision at the WTO."
