Program on America and the Global Economy
Almost a year after joining the World Trade Organization (WTO), China still falls short of completing many of its promises to the international community. Regional political problems and a depressed global economy have increased pressure on the Communist Party leadership to remain protective of domestic agriculture, many state owned industries, and traditional businesses even as the national government remains strongly committed to opening Chinese markets to international trade and financial flows. Expanding international commerce has continued to increase economic opportunities for many Chinese but the greater integration into the world community has not yet translated into greater individual rights. China has arguably become more closed over the past year with its tightening restrictions on religious groups and its increased regulation of the Internet.
