China, with a huge market in government procurement, submitted an application to join the WTO GPA and formally began the negotiating process with the other signatories to the Agreement while the current parties were revising the 1994 GPA. International trade is not simply the outcome of market forces, of relative supply and demand. Rather, it is the result of a complex and interlocking network of bargains that are partly economic and partly political. This article discusses the main factors influencing China’s accession to the GPA from the perspective of trade negotiation, outlines the possible emerging problems and difficulties in the course of the accession and provides a brief recommendation to make the negotiations go on wheels.
