China Raises India Toy Ban at WTO

China has made a complaint with the WTO in regards to India banning China-produced  toys, calling the ban “discriminatory:”

While stopping short of launching a formal trade dispute, China
used a meeting of the WTO’s technical barriers to trade committee to raise the issue, which has soured relations between the two emerging markets giants.

The row has been closely watched as an example of trade tensions between developing countries at a time when fears are growing that protectionist measures could make the economic crisis worse.

The ban was lifted at the beginning of the month.
