Preface

By James Bacchus



With the publication of this yearbook on WTO dispute settlement, the University of International Business and Economics (UIBE) in Beijing adds to its rapidly growing global reputation as a premier source of insight into international trade law as part of the international economy.

Only fifteen years have passed since the establishment of the World Trade Organization (WTO). Only ten years have passed since China became a Member of the WTO. And yet the sheer amount of jurisprudence clarifying WTO obligations is voluminous.

This jurisprudence demands and deserves summation and elucidation. This yearbook provides it. It begins with an overall overview of WTO dispute settlement by Jun Wang, the distinguished dean of UIBE. It follows with a review of WTO cases involving China by Hongliu Gong, one of UIBE’s brightest young professors. It then continues with in-depth analysis of cases involving issues ranging from trade remedies to intellectual property to much more.

The treatment of China’s emergence as a leader -- and a frequent litigant -- in the WTO is especially useful and impressive. It shows clearly how China has emerged in a short time as a central player in the unfolding story of world trade, and of the WTO-based world trading system. With its unique understanding of Chinese economy and Chinese governance, UIBE is especially able to offer a major contribution here.

I am honored to have a small contribution of my own included in this collection, and I am honored too to have been named an honorary professor at UIBE. It is a pleasure and a privilege to be associated with such a distinguished faculty and such a significant center of global learning. Like many others, I look forward to many more such yearbooks in the years to come.

序言二

詹姆斯•巴克斯

随着这本世界贸易组织争端解决年度报告的面世,闻名于世的国际贸易法乃至国际经济的研究重镇——位于中国首都北京的对外经济贸易大学(“贸大”),为其迅速扩展的全球声誉赢得了又一次提升。

自诞生至今,世界贸易组织(WTO)仅十五稚龄。而中国的“入世”亦刚满十载。然而,致力于澄清WTO义务的法理判例却纷呈毕现,卷轶浩繁。

这些法理判例亟需并值得我们的总结和阐明。本年度报告堪当此任。它的开篇,由“贸大”法学院的杰出院长王军对WTO争端解决情况进行总体概述。随之,“贸大”的优秀青年学者龚红柳,对涉华WTO争端案件进行了综述。尔后,一系列对WTO争端个案的深度分析纷纷呈现,涉及由贸易救济至知识产权等广泛领域。

中国在WTO中已然崛起,无论是作为领导者,还是作为活跃的参讼方。秉持前述认知和立场,不仅大有裨益,而且令人赞许。它清楚地展示了中国如何在短时期内迅速脱颖而出,在不断展开的世界贸易的“剧情”里,在根植于WTO的世界贸易体系所发展出的“剧情”中,一跃成为了主角。而“贸大”,凭借其对中国经济和中国治理模式的独到理解,尤能对此贡献卓越。

本年度报告也接纳了我的一篇小稿,这使我深感荣幸。更令我荣幸的是成为了“贸大”的荣誉教授。能与如此出色的教师团队、如此卓著的国际化教研中心联系在一起,倍觉愉快和殊荣。与大家一样,我期待着来年有更多这样的年度报告问世。
