The TUC’s work on China focuses on several fronts:, but crucially we are concerned with, first, the effects of rapid Chinese development on the global economy; and second, the absence of the legal right to free and independent trade unions in mainland China.

· We continue to work with independent unions and labour-related non-governmental organisations in Hong Kong including the Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions (HKCTU), China Labour Bulletin (CLB) and the Hong Kong Liaison Office of the international trade union movement(IHLO).
· We maintain contact with the official state trade union movement in China, the All China Federation of Trade Unions (ACFTU) and are looking at joint programmes to enable them to deal with the reality of moves to a full market economy.
· We work with British companies and non-governmental organisations to improve conditions for Chinese working for British multinationals through programmes such as the Ethical Trading Initiative.
