S. 308, Ending China’s Developing National Status Act

As reported by the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on June 13, 2023


S. 308 would require the Department of State to influence international organizations to reclassify China as a developed country instead of as a developing country. On the basis of information about the costs of diplomatic efforts to influence the actions of other nations and international organizations, CBO estimates that implementing the bill would cost less than $500,000 over the 2023-2028 period. Any spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds.
