Xinhua quoted the Ministry of Commerce said China welcomes the decision of the World Trade Organization to rule in China favor over duties China imposed on US steel exports.

The ministry said in a statement that the WTO panel supported China claims and ruled that China trade remedy measures complied with WTO rules in some areas such as in the subsidy calculation methodology and on the disclosure of subsidies concerning government procurement.
