Tu Xinquan, professor and dean of the China Institute for WTO Studies at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing, said China has always been faithful to multilateralism and free trade. The country is very cautious in imposing anti-dumping duties, he said, adding that it would be good if China and the US resolve disputes through dialogue and consultations based on mutual respect and equal treatment.
"No matter, if the disputes are on tariffs or some other issues, as long as the two parties are open to dialogue and consultation, there is still hope of avoiding imposing tariffs unilaterally," Tu said.
