China to Increase Exports from the U.S. Under Phase 1 Deal

According to the new trade which will be signed between China and the U.S. on Wednesday, China has pledged that over the next two years they will buy the U.S. manufactured goods worth $80 billion in addition to energy supplies of $50 billion. Over the same two-year period, hey will also boost the purchases of U.S. services by about $35 billion.

In the Phase 1 agreement between the two countries Chinese will increase purchases of U.S. agricultural goods by $32 billion or roughly $16 billion a year. This when compared to baseline export in 2017, gets close to the $40 billion annual goal when combined with $24 billion U.S. agricultural goods.

On Monday, Myron Brilliant, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s head of international affairs, confirmed the $32 billion agriculture increase over 2017.

The numbers are expected to be announced during the signing ceremony between Trump and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He. That are representing a drastic increase over Chinese imports of U.S. manufactured goods.

In the significant increase on $80 billion of manufactured goods the country will be importing autos, auto parts, aircraft, agricultural machinery, medical devices and semiconductors.
