n article in Italian 24-Hours Sun Newspaper pointed out recently that China had achieved substantial success after its accession to the WTO for five years and had been constantly changing the economic structure of the world.As indicated in this article, the result of these five years proved that China’s accession to the WTO and joining in the free trade system not only benefited itself but also brought out profits to other countries. For instance, the multinational enterprises, which migrated production bases to China, had obtained rich profits and the low priced Chinese commodity at the meantime increased purchasing power of western consumers.

Chinese annual income per capita has risen from less than USD1000 in 2001 to USD2000.
