Meanwhile, as member of the WTO, China has also obtained the advantages brought by the opening global market, which has offered wider market space for China’s exported commodities. The article sums up the characteristics of China’s textile import and export trade in the period after China joined the WTO and their impact on the textile industry and anticipates the future development of this trade.
