Informing the US-China Trade Debate: USCBC Releases 2nd in Series of Analyses of Congressional Districts' Exports to China

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - June 6, 2007) - The US-China Business Council (USCBC) today released the second set of analyses of US exports to China from key congressional districts. The data underscores the growth of US exports to China since it joined the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2001 (see www.uschina.org/public/documents/2007/06/uscbc_congressional_district_exports_to_china_2000-06.pdf).

The analysis, undertaken by the Trade Partnership (www.tradepartnership.com), quantifies exports to China from 2000 -- the year before China joined the WTO -- through 2006 from every congressional district represented in the House of Representatives' US-China Working Group in the 110th Congress.

The report is the second in a series of US congressional district and US state export analyses the USCBC has launched to help inform the debate about trade with China. Previous releases are available at www.uschina.org/tradefacts.

"These analyses demonstrate clearly the significant benefits that our exports with China bring to local economies across the United States," said John Frisbie, USCBC president. Total US exports to China grew more than 30 percent in 2006 and are up 240 percent since 2000.

The USCBC (www.uschina.org) is the leading organization of US companies engaged in business with the People's Republic of China. Founded in 1973, the USCBC provides extensive China-focused information, advisory, and advocacy services, along with events, to more than 250 US corporations operating within the United States and throughout Asia.
