Handbook on China's WTO accession and its impacts by Cheong Ching( )
7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It has taken China 15 long years of tough negotiations to achieve accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO). By becoming a full member of the WTO, China has in fact made three tiers of commitments. The first tier is the commitment to the objectives of the WTO, such as free trade, most-favoured nations, national treatment and transparency, as expounded in the various documents setting up the organization and its predecessor, the GATT. The second tier is the commitment to the set of rules governing trade for specific sectors, such as agricultural and textile goods, or information technology and telecommunications. This is set out in China's accession protocol. The third tier is the commitment to bilateral agreements which China signed with her major trading partners. Their support is mandatory before China can be admitted to the WTO and therefore she has to satisfy each of them through elaborate bilateral negotiations. This handbook highlights the important commitments that China has made to the international community and analyzes the potential impact of such commitments on China. Part I of the book outlines China's commitments to convert her economy from a centrally planned one to a free market one as far as cross-border movement of goods, services and personnel is concerned. It reproduces China's commitments in a tabular format to facilitate reading, and is supplemented with brief references to WTO regulations where appropriate so that readers get to know how China's commitments relate to WTO obligations. It summarizes several hundred pages of legal documents in a format comprehensible to the general public. Part II examines the impact on China's WTO membership as a whole and on her specific economic sectors. Appendix 1 lists documents contained in the Final Act of the Uruguay Round (WTO Agreement); Appendix 2 lists all the legal instruments pertaining to China's accession to the WTO and reprints the Protocol of China's Accession. China's schedule of commitments on services, rearranged in a format more comprehensible to the general reader, is included as Appendix 3, so that concerned readers can find out for themselves how their professions may be affected. The classification of services in Appendix 4 serves the same purpose as Appendix 3

Cheng Xiang ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2009 in Chinese and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ching Cheong (Veteran Journalist) talks about his experience being detained in a Chinese jail for the alleged charge of espionage. He says the incidence does not change his love for his country. He identifies three criteria for being a patriot and criticizes the Chinese Communist Party for being unpatriotic during the first 30 years after assuming power over China. He says although communism has been abandoned in the economic front after reform and opening up, politically, the country remains a "one-party dictatorship". This is the root of many of China's problems which can only be corrected by political reform
