This book argues that the trade-distorting effects of advantages associated with SOEs are more severe from an economic perspective, and the behavior of SOEs after receiving advantages is of more concern, compared to private-owned enterprises (POEs). The premise is that the existence of SOEs per se is not the essential problem; rather, the underlying problems are (i) the disproportionate granting of advantages to SOEs (compared to POEs) and (ii) the behavior of SOEs once they receive advantages.

The book offers a systematic analysis focusing on the various advantages granted to SOEs and their subsequent behavior. Its detailed analysis reveals the inadequacy of current WTO rules and is complemented by a number of concrete proposals.

International Trade
The Global Presence of SOEs and Their Receipts of Advantages
The Extent, Nature, and Effect of Advantages Granted to Chinese SOEs
The Existing WTO Rules Addressing the Problems and Their Weaknesses
Proposals to the WTO Rules to Address the Problem
General Assessments of the Proposals Within the WTO Framework
