WASHINGTON—Mark Wu, the U.S. Commerce Consultant’s prime China adviser, mentioned he resigned his place, citing household causes.
In an interview, Mr. Wu mentioned he left USTR in mid-July and is returning in August to Harvard Legislation College the place he focuses on mental property points and Chinese language commerce coverage.
“The plan had all the time been to assist (Commerce Consultant) Katherine Tai settle into her position,” Mr. Wu mentioned. “The staff has settled into place, and a rhythm has been established.”
Mr. Wu cited household points as another excuse for his departure, which he mentioned had nothing to do with the persevering with USTR review of China policy.
USTR is within the midst of a broad evaluation of its China coverage, which is predicted to be accomplished within the fall. Few particulars of the coverage have been made public, resulting in mounting frustration by large buyers and exporters to China. Mr. Wu declined to touch upon the coverage effort.
