WASHINGTON — The U.S. has joined as a third party with Mexico at the World Trade Organization in a case that charges China with using illegal import substitution and export subsidies in its apparel and textile sector.


Mexico filed a WTO case against China’s apparel and textile subsidies on Oct. 15, charging that China “appears to maintain a wide variety of measures that support producers and exporters of apparel and textile products, both directly and indirectly,” adding that “these measures appear to involve both prohibited and actionable subsidies that are inconsistent with China’s obligations under” several international agreements, as well as China’s WTO accession agreement.
