The Chinese government has requested the World Trade Organization (WTO) dispute consultations with the US over subsidies from the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA).

The request, which was circulated on Thursday (28 March), claims that the US’ subsidies favour the production of domestic renewables – and electric vehicles – over imported goods or “discriminate against goods of Chinese origin in violation of provisions under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994, the Agreement on Trade-Related Investment Measures and the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures.”
