U.S. stance on Chinese trade to be discussed at luncheon
Ambassador Charlene Barshefsky, the U.S. trade representative, will present "America's Case for China's WTO Accession and PNTR" at noon Tuesday at the Baltimore Council on Foreign Affairs luncheon at the Harbor Court Hotel, 550 Light St.
Congress is considering a measure that would grant China permanent normal trade relations, the same low-tariff access to U.S. markets that nearly every other nation has. The bill also would ease China's entry into the World Trade Organization, which oversees international trade.
