This Can't Be True

. Thursday, July 21, 2011

Hannah Kuchler at FT Tilt:

China is celebrating its first ever victory at the World Trade Organisation after the European Union was found to be discriminating against Chinese nuts and bolts.

China has won WTO cases before. Perhaps the author means that this is the first victory for China against the EU:

And it marks a victory for China -- the main target of anti-dumping measures, or duties on imports judged to be sold for less than they cost at home -- in its first trade dispute against the European Union since joining the WTO in 2001.

But even that can't be true... China and the EU have had numerous trade disputes.

I'm confused. Is this the first time that China has won an anti-dumping case against the EU? Is this a first anything? I have no idea what these articles are trying to say.
