US urges China to boost goods purchasing as economy recovers

(VOVWORLD) - The US Chamber of Commerce on Friday urged Beijing to sharply increase its purchases of US goods as China’s economy recovers from the novel coronavirus outbreak, saying that increased purchases would help both countries and the global economy. 

Myron Brilliant, head of international affairs for the largest US business group, said the US hopes China will dramatically accelerate its purchases of American products, consistent with the Phase 1 deal, and continues to take steps to further open its economy.
