US business group sees China keeping purchase commitments despite coronavirus

Craig Allen, president of the US-China Business Council (USCBC) said that the business slowdown in China could affect the timing of purchases, but both governments were committed to meeting the targets. The group represents US companies doing business in and with China. While China’s commitment to increase purchases of US manufactured goods, farm products, energy and services by $200 billion by the end of 2021 was “aggressive,” he said US industry was ready to meet the challenge.
