US experts: Growth target 'well within China's capacity'

In 2019, exports to China supported 1.2 million jobs in the US and as of 2018, 197,000 people in the US were directly employed by Chinese multinational firms, according to a report the US-China Business Council released in partnership with the Oxford Economics in January. "With China forecast to drive around one-third of global growth over the next decade, maintaining market access to China is increasingly essential for US businesses' global success," the report said.
