According to an article that Guangming Daily published, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Commerce reported that China has always been the biggest target of trade remedy investigations. The spokesperson pointed out that, since the WTO was formed in 1995, the number of investigations against China totaled 1,149. This number accounted for 32 percent of the total. China has been investigated for anti-dumping for 21 consecutive years and under countervailing investigations for 10 consecutive years. The article mentioned that recent reports from the WTO and the EU both cited the rise of trade protectionism, especially among G20 members where one-third of their trade remedy measures directly target China. The spokesperson claimed that trade protectionism does not help the world with the recovery of its economy.
