The mission of the WTO is to promote trade between means while insuring the members utilize fair trade practices. The advantage of WTO membership increases trade for the country enormously. It has greated a boom for China. America, along with EU, follow the restrictions set by the WTO, but China (along with Korea) have overtly ignored them and basically broke all their promises! Nevertheless, China can still reap all the advantages of WTO membership, but not even come close (or even attempt to reach) any of the WTO's high standards! WTO!
