The EU should join forces with African countries to reform the World Trade Organization's (WTO) subsidy rules as a way to counter Chinese market distortions and diplomatic influence, the German Economic Institute (IW) argued in a paper on Wednesday. The IW, which is financed by prominent German business associations and carries weight among Berlin policymakers, published the paper ahead of an EU-China summit in Beijing on Thursday and Friday. The issue of unfair competition is expected to top the agenda, three months after the European Commission launched an anti-subsidy probe into Chinese electric vehicles.
Moody's negative outlook on China has intensified Beijing's battle with market bears, raising pressure on the government for more forceful measures to prop up sinking stocks and stabilise the yuan as investor confidence deteriorates. In its Tuesday announcement, the ratings agency flagged weakening growth prospects, adding to mounting global concerns that China's economic miracle is over, potentially leaving the world's second-largest economy stuck in a middle-income trap. While keeping China's sovereign rating at A1, Moody's cut its outlook to negative from stable, citing surging municipal debt and property market woes.
