Technical Issues

Proponents of granting China permanent MFN suggest that China could not enter the World Trade Organization (WTO) unless the U.S. Congress granted it permanent Most Favored Nation (MFN) status. Contradicting their first point, proponents of permanent China MFN also claim that if China entered the WTO and the US Congress does not pass permanent MFN for China, the US would be denied WTO benefits as regards China. (ie. the the claim that Congress' refusal to grant permanent MFN for China would mean that only the US was excluded from WTO treatment from China while other countries enjoyed it.) Both claims are entirely false.
