AFP: WTO status hurts China’s rural poor: World Bank

From AFP, via The Globe and Mail:

China’s rural poor have suffered a “sharp 6-per-cent drop” in living standards since Beijing’s accession to the World Trade Organization in 2001, according to a World Bank report released yesterday.

The study consequently urged Chinese authorities to take steps to correct what it said has been an uneven distribution of benefits from WTO membership between rural and urban areas.
