The State Council has approved the appointment of Vice Commerce Minister Gao Hucheng, as China's International Trade Representative.

The appointment comes in the wake of increasing friction between China and its trade partners, since the onset of the global financial crisis. The representative will mainly be responsible for China's major multilateral and bilateral economic and trade negotiations, as well as liaising with domestic companies.

The position was first introduced during China's bid for WTO membership, but was suspended in 2008. It was crucial to the settlement of a textiles dispute between China and the EU.
