TOKYO -- The U.S., the European Union and Japan look to bolster the World Trade Organization's enforcement against countries suspected of subsidizing industries in violation of WTO rules, likely with China in mind.

Trade ministers from the three economies will discuss a joint reform proposal when they meet in New York on Sept. 25. They aim to draw up a proposal as early as fall and submit it to the WTO's top decision-making body in Geneva, the General Council.
