The Rules committee heard testimony on bills and amendments relating to the extension of most favored nation trade status for China. The extension would allow the resumption of normalized trade relations with China, broken off after the military crackdown on dissent by the Beijing government in 1989. The Bush administration favors the resumption of normalized trade relations with China, saying continuing high tariffs on Chinese goods would harm the private sector of manufacturers in China and would harm U.S.-Chinese relations. Opponents of the extension claim such an extension would appear to condone the brutal military crackdown, and want at a minimum conditions set on the extension of most favored nation trade status for China that would require improvements in China’s human rights record before further extensions would be granted. The committee heard testimony on a bill introduced by Rep. Solomon that would prevent the extension of MFN status to China in 1991, a bill introduced by Rep. Pelosi that would set conditions on further extensions of China’s MFN status after 1992, and a resolution from Rep. Solarz requesting China not continue policies against U.S. interests. close
