US wins over China at WTO case on luxury cars

WASHINGTON (AFP) - The WTO Friday rejected tariffs imposed by China on US-made luxury cars, handing Washington a victory on one of the growing number of disputes between the world's two largest economies.

US Trade Representative Michael Froman and lawmakers hailed the decision as a major win after a World Trade Organisation panel found no basis for duties that China imposed in December 2011 over alleged US dumping and subsidies.
