China-U.S. trade shifts towards balance, sustainability

Economy and trade are perhaps the area where China and the United States have most of their converging interests and where they have achieved substantial and mutually beneficial gains through cooperation and management of differences. China is now the third largest U.S. export destination after Canada and Mexico. U.S. exports to China have increased 198 percent over the past 10 years, higher than its such growth to any other country, said the U.S.-China Business Council in its 2015 annual report.
