China Trade By The Numbers, US Census

CS Commentary: China is about 17% of total US trade, but only 7% of our total exports. Meanwhile, the US imports over 20% of China’s goods relative to other countries. China is the US’s largest trade deficit – over $400 billion a year at present and it has consistently risen over the years. In 2018, the US exported $120 billion and imported $539 billion from China. This, among other things, gives the US significant leverage in trade negotiations with China.
