Overview

Jing Zhu is an international trade analyst and Co-Chair of the Trade Remedies Committee of the Association of Women in International Trade (WIIT). She has organized high-level policy dialogues covering Section 232 investigations, U.S.-China trade disputes, agricultural trade and non-tariff trade barriers on behalf of the WIIT. Prior to joining the firm, Jing was an associate editor at a trade publication, Inside U.S. Trade, where she produced on-site coverage of the Sixth WTO Ministerial Conference held in Hong Kong.

Jing has assisted the Chinese government in one of the first subsidy cases against non-market economies and multinational corporations in addressing trade barriers abroad. Most recently, Jing has assisted Canadian producers and industry associations in trade remedy and investor-state disputes in front of the U.S. Department of Commerce, U.S. International Trade Commission, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and the World Trade Organization (WTO). 

Jing has developed in-depth knowledge about the policy-making process and business environment in both the United States and China. She is the lead author of a foreign affairs column analyzing U.S. policies toward Asia for China's most influential digital news media, Thepaper.cn, which attracts more than 10 million visits per day. In recognition of Jing's contributions to promoting a better understanding of that important bilateral relationship, the Committee of 100, a prominent Chinese-American organization, recently selected her as a NextGen Ambassador.
