This chapter opens the discussions of the issues relating to non-market economies under the multilateral trading system by highlighting the importance of these issues and outlining the development of these issues in relation to China. It sets out the structure of the book and summarises how each subsequent chapter contributes to the understanding of and debate over non-market economies, the interpretation and application of the relevant WTO rules especially those on anti-dumping and subsidies, and the anti-dumping laws and practices in major jurisdictions, using China as a special case.
