US to create task force to monitor China

The US will create a panel to monitor and tackle possible trade and other commercial violations by China, the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reported, a move that some Chinese experts said will increase frictions between the world’s two largest economies.

US President Barack Obama plans to create a panel, called ”Enforcement Task Force”, to enforce US trade rules and is specifically meant to target China, the WSJ cited people familiar with the matter as saying Tuesday.

The report, which was published during US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner’s visit to China, said Geithner would discuss the plan with Chinese leaders in Beijing.

An e-mail to the press office of the US Embassy in Beijing to confirm the news went unanswered yesterday.

Obama is expected to announce the initiative during or around his State of the Union address later this month, the WSJ said.

"The panel indicates that the Obama administration will become tougher on China this year, as China has emerged as an important issue in the US presidential election,” Shen Dingli, director of the Center for American Studies at Fudan University, told the Global Times yesterday.
