US-China wind turbine talks "very productive" - USTR

Wed Mar 30, 2011 4:42pm GMT

WASHINGTON, March 30 (Reuters) - U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk on Wednesday expressed hope a dispute over China's support for domestic wind turbine manufacturers can be resolved before a World Trade Organization panel hears the case.

"We're actively engaged in very productive discussions with China," Kirk said in a speech at the National Bureau of Asian Research. Asked later if he thought the two sides could resolve the dispute before it moves to the formal litigation stage, Kirk said: "I hope so."
