The NBR Analysis offers thought-provoking essays and briefs on the most important economic, political, and strategic issues in the Asia-Pacific region today.
The debate over permanent normal trade relations (PNTR) status for China and China’s accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO) have raised important questions concerning U.S.-China relations more broadly. The articles contained in this NBR Analysis address two of the major issues related to China’s PNTR status and accession to the WTO: How will China’s integration into the global economy affect Taiwan, and how will accession play out in China?
