U.S. tells WTO concerned about Chinese cyber security laws

GENEVA, Sept 26 (Reuters) - The United States has told the World Trade Organization that a new Chinese cyber security law could have a significant adverse effect on global trade in services, a document posted on the WTO's website showed on Tuesday.

"Chinas measures would disrupt, deter, and in many cases, prohibit cross-border transfers of information that are routine in the ordinary course of business," said the U.S. document that was submitted for debate at the WTO Services Council.

"We request that China refrain from issuing or implementing final measures until such concerns are addressed." (Reporting by Tom Miles; Editing by Robin Pomeroy)
