WASHINGTON – Markets in China selling counterfeit fashion products showed little signs of abating last year and remain an area of concern for U.S. trade officials trying to prod the Chinese to make reforms, according to a new government report released Friday.

“There is a list in the report of markets that are subjects of concern,” said Stan McCoy, assistant U.S. Trade Representative for intellectual property and innovation. “That is part of our ongoing discussion with a number of countries around the world in terms of physical markets like the Silk Market in Beijing and in terms of virtual markets on different Internet Web sites that buy pirated and counterfeit goods.”
