US states continue to value trade relations with China, despite ongoing tensions at the i
nternational level, and they hope tensions will be resolved through negotiations.
“I’m very optimistic on the China-US trade relationship,” Cyrus Habib, lieutenant governor of Washington, said in an inter
view with China Daily as he was attending the Fifth China-US Governors Forum in Lexington, Kentucky, last week.
China is the state of Washington’s top trading partner, with more than 20 percent of the state’s expor
ts going to China, and around 30 percent of its imports came from China in 2018, according to the US Census Bureau.
“It’s truly something that touches every part of our state,” said Habib. “And that went from the i
nformation communication technology sector and manufacturing sector all the way to the agricultural industry and tourism.”
