China is likely to be uncompromising as its dispute with the US and other trading partners over auto parts goes before the WTO, AFP reported. Deputy US Trade Representative Karan Bhatia said that it is likely to be the first case involving China to make it through the entire WTO dispute settlement process. Last month Beijing blocked a move by the US, EU and Canada to receive a ruling from the WTO on the legality of tariffs China imposes on foreign auto parts. As this blocking tactic can only be used once, the case is expected to shortly come before a WTO panel. "We've had no indications from the Chinese that they're prepared to address this area to our satisfaction and so I fully do expect the panel will be formed," Bhatia said. He is to visit China next week for talks on a number of issues, including an end to Chinese subsidies the US claims protect state-owned industries from foreign competition.
