WASHINGTON, Aug. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The international law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP has launched East-West Trade Monitor, a blog addressing the key issues affecting China-U.S. trade, including the laws, treaties, policies and politics that shape an increasingly important relationship.

"China's rapid growth, coupled with the preeminent position of the United States in international trade, has led to friction and growing pains," said Rosa S. Jeong, a shareholder who works out of the firm's Washington, D.C. office. "However, there has been a corresponding expansion of opportunities. Our goal is to provide readers of our new blog with a reliable source of information regarding the factors influencing China-U.S. trade."

East-West Trade Monitor reviews the latest developments surrounding trade remedies and dispute settlement, export controls, anti-bribery compliance, foreign investment, customs and duty management strategies, and intellectual property and the World Trade Organization (WTO) Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) agreement.

"The purpose of the East-West Trade Monitor is to provide timely information and advice to companies doing business in and with Asia in an ever and rapidly changing trade environment," said shareholder Philippe M. Bruno. "The pace of changes in Asia, and especially in China, is at times mind boggling and has repercussions on how U.S. exporters and importers relate to their own government in dealing with this new trade environment."

"Our team works with importers and exporters to promote global trade and lower trade barriers," said Irwin P. Altschuler, chair of Greenberg Traurig's Global Trade & Investment Practice. "East-West Trade Monitor reviews the short- and long-term challenges facing companies in an ever-changing international economy."
