Liberalization of Trade In Energy Service Under the Gats

Ms. Ye s project is a legal analysis of trade in energy services, a fairly new issue in GATS (General Agreement on Trade in Service). This issue is one which is an exceedingly important one for China, one of the world s largest consumers of energy, but one which has not received much attention. Among the questions Ms. Ye hopes to answer are: what limitations does the existing WTO/GATS framework confront, how it can be improved without fundamentally altering the prevailing regime structures, and what China s position on the issue of trade in energy services should be.
