WASHINGTON - The Bush administration on Friday accused 60 countries and three trading blocs of erecting unfair barriers to American exports in an annual report.

The administration used the report to intensify pressure on China to deal with such long-simmering trade disputes as the piracy of copyrighted music, movies and computer software, which American companies contend costs them billions of dollars a year in lost sales.

The administration is seeking to force China to make a number of trade concessions in coming weeks to address the huge trade gap with the United States.

The new report will serve as a guide to U.S. negotiators in their efforts to attack barriers seen as doing the most damage to American companies.
