China Pushed for Trade Pact on Technology Products

China is part of "intensive" talks on a global trade pact regarding information technology products, the World Trade Organization's chief said, but it is unclear if a deal will be made at a meeting of Asia-Pacific leaders underway in Beijing. The United States and other countries have been hopeful that China would sign on to the Information Technology Agreement (ITA), which requires signatories to eliminate duties on some IT products, during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit.
