red block  PANEL I: U.S.-China Trade and Economic Outlook

The U.S. trade deficit with China, which stands around $350 billion, is the top concern among Americans regarding the U.S.-China relationship. (Source: Committee of 100 2017 U.S.-China Public Perceptions Survey). At the same time, a majority of Americans agree that trade with China, the U.S.’s second largest trading partner, is beneficial to the U.S. economy and that Chinese investments should be encouraged. This panel will discuss these and other divergent viewpoints, and highlight opportunities to improve the most important bi-lateral trade relationship in the world today.
