this is the end of your business on the office and the welcome it's a watershed moment for the global trading system the world trade organizations appeals court is about to collapse after successive u.s. administrations blocked to the appointment of new judges global trade looks set to lose its ultimate pile without it it will be impossible to reach final resolutions of trade disputes between countries the world trade organization without having to worry about possible sanctions countries could use tariffs or be tempted to implement protectionist measures critics fear world trade is facing the law of the jungle. the man is not for budging and unless there's an 11th hour breakthrough the face of the world trade organization top of course has been sealed u.s. ambassador to the w t o dennis chase says he'll continue to block the appointment of new judges whose job it is to rule on trade disputes here is what that means the applet body is made up
of 7 judges 4 whose terms have expired have not been replaced because the united states has blocked the naming of their replacements 2 of the remaining 3 are due to leave on wednesday with only one member remaining the court would no longer be able to function and the director general said that he will be now holding intensive consultations of a political nature i'll get to his statement in a minute but what he said was that he thinks we need to dig deeper and we need to have a broader look at what we might be able to do in order to get a permanent solution to this problem involving the appellate body many of washington's objections center on rulings related to trade with china. without a court the 164 member w t o would no longer have a binding dispute settlement system in a global trade environment that is a ready highly volatile that prospect has many feeling highly alarmed.
let's check in with our tonics both clifford coonan who is in hong kong at the moment clifford are they really that difficult the us that is. this is it just because of china i think it's largely about china i think one of the things we're learning is that the truth doesn't like multilateralism it doesn't like dealing with a lot of people that wants you prefers dealing one on one. with you know he's been destructive the nation he's been destructive with the climate climate change summers and now he's taking aim at the cio and i think the focus of this is our of his approach is basically on china and he's looking for a trade deal with china that will suit the us and he doesn't want the job he owes any kind of destruction to the us but also the rules of the w t o have been set up when china still was an emerging power an emerging economy now
it's the 2nd biggest economy in the world do the u.s. have a point. i think there is a sense that that china has been having it all its own way for too long and certainly us what the u.s. would argue and they've been saying to us and china has been able to take advantage of jockey cio rules it's been able to get any kind of complaints bogged down and there's all kinds of issues with the jockey cio structurally that the u.s. doesn't like and it's not just drunk but this is successive u.s. presidents of be complaining about this and which suited china so i think it is possible that the u.s. does have a point the problem with the u.s. approach is of course is it blowing everything up so you're ruling out any kind of possibility for debate or discussion about trade issues and by getting rid of these senior judges would indicate you know structure so as you have a point the approach is again something that some people would have issues with but if they do have a point other try knees ready to compromise what's what's their point of view i
don't think the chinese are ready to compromise i think and the chinese are focusing very much on the developing world whereas the u.s. is sort of looking for make america great focusing on putting america 1st. and so it's difficult to see where you could compromise and i think what's more likely is that we're going to focus now on the deals aspect of this and if you look also the u.s. has been talking to mexico it's going to find it one on one deal with mexico about trade and i think that could be the model as well for what happens with china so i think that for now and the chinese whether or not they're ready to compromise i think the focus is going to shift more to the bilateral talks between the u.s. and china and i think that's the direction we're going to be going now clifford cohen and that joining us from hong kong thank you very much for this analysis. the former chairman of the group kim chong has died of pneumonia following
