Obama To File WTO Complaints Against China

  @MikeObel m.obel@ibtimes.com on

The Obama administration will file a World Trade Organization complaints against China, charging its government with illegally subsidizing exports of cars and car parts and imposing unfair duties on U.S. auto exports, according to a published report Monday.

Obama will highlight the moves, the Wall Street Journal reported, while campaigning in Ohio, one of the most hotly contested states in the upcoming presidential election.

The White House said the WTO actions will affect the more than 770,000 U.S. carmaker jobs, including about 475,000 in the car parts manufacturing sector.
