Trump Puts China Under Microscope With WTO Envoy Nom

July 12, 2017, Law360

John Veroneau is quoted in a Law360 article regarding President Trump's appointment of Dennis Shea to serve as the deputy U.S. trade representative in Geneva. “The main focus of this administration has been the impact of China’s accession to the WTO," says Veroneau. “To the extent that there are concerns about the WTO these days, it’s often revolved around questions about China, so having a China hand in the post makes sense.” Veroneau adds, “It confirms that [the Administration] recognize[s] the WTO as an important institution, and it’s going to be important that to the extent the president and his team have concerns about the WTO, those are best addressed by being active within the organization and not standing outside it.”
