Since 2006, more than a quarter of the requests for consultation at the WTO have invoked the SCM Agreement more than half of which have involved China - mostly as respondent. I think the nature of 21st century subsidy disputes that along with AD cases, are clearly on the rise - not only in terms of number but more importantly in terms of scope of government actions and regulatory areas they cover - is as much about economic conflicts as they are about ideational and at some deeper level ideological conflicts over the "proper" role of the state in a market economy.
