Democrats Urge Bush on Trade Grievances

From AP, via

House Democrats, citing the rising U.S. trade deficit, urged President Bush on Thursday to take action against China, Japan, the European Union and six other countries accused of unfair trade practices…

The administration, they said, should pursue cases against:

-China for currency manipulation and intellectual property rights violations that hurt the U.S. recording industry. China should be put on a “priority watch list” of countries that present significant piracy problems for U.S. copyright holders if consultations and a WTO dispute resolution case don’t solve the problem, they said.

In another story, AP also reports that, “China faces more trade and investment barriers in the United States than anywhere else, a government report said, echoing a similar U.S. report accusing China of harming American businesses through such obstacles.”
