CHINESE MAN PASSES A WTO BILLBOARD IN BEIJING.
A Chinese man on his cycle passes by a WTO billboard in Beijing October 11, 2000. President Bill Clinton signed into law on Tuesday a historic bill granting permanent normal trade relations to China and dispatched his top trade negotiator for urgent talks with Premier Zhu Rongji in hopes of settling disputes that threaten Beijing's entry to the World Trade Organization. The Chinese characters on the sign reads "Meeting WTO's Challenge".
