Report: China matters to US heartland

Craig Allen, president of the US China Business Council, said that it is important to actively defend US corporate interests in China despite the complicated bilateral relations. "Some 10 percent of American exports go to China, supporting an employment of over 1 million of our fellow citizens in 2021," Allen said. "In addition, Chinese companies employ another 160,000 American citizens in the US. Chinese companies like Fuyao Glass are excellent supporters of their local communities and our local economy."
