U.S.-China Motor Vehicle Trade, and More from CRS
“In 2009, China overtook the United States to become both the world’s largest producer of and market for motor vehicles,” a new report from the Congressional Research Service notes.
That is not altogether bad news. “Every year since 2010, General Motors has sold more cars in China (through exports and its joint ventures there) than in the United States,” CRS said. “On the other hand, China maintains a number of trade and investment barriers that affect trade flows in autos and auto parts.”
