Abstract:The purpose of this research is to make proposals to the World Trade Organization (i.e., the WTO) rules to address the problem of granting advantages to state-owned enterprises (SOEs). SOEs tend to receive various advantages, including financial advantages, monopolies and exclusive, regulatory advantages and so on, leading to economic concerns. The problem is typical in the context of China. However, current WTO rules are not sufficient to address the problem of SOEs receiving various advantages. The dissertation makes recommendations to improve them. It makes three types of proposals, i.e., trade remedies proposals, trade rules proposals, and competition rules proposals. It assesses these proposals in terms of the possibility of implementing them, particularly the political willingness of WTO Members to accept these proposals. Lastly, I lay out the framework for the competition rules proposals which prevail in my analysis.
