China's accession to WTO benefits all, says former WTO head Release date: 2021-12-15    Source:Xinhua

All economies have benefited from China's accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO), Pascal Lamy, a former WTO director-general, told French daily Le Monde recently.

"This entry has boosted global economic growth," Lamy, who served as head of the WTO from 2005 to 2013, said in the interview published on Dec. 10.

"China modernized its economy through the import of capital goods and technologies, while consumers around the world benefited from China's low price goods," he said.

"In general, all world economies have benefited from it," Lamy said.

"The multilateral framework is irreplaceable. It cannot be replaced by bilateral (ones)," he stressed.
