Another massive monthly trade deficit with China: Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) Statement
The latest monthly U.S. trade figures were released this morning by the U.S. Department of Commerce. The U.S. nearly matched the record monthly trade deficit with China it reached in July, this time falling just shy of the $30 billion mark.
- In August, the overall U.S. international goods and services deficit rose to $38.8 billion, up from $38.6 billion in July, revised.
- The monthly U.S. goods deficit with China clocked $29.9 billion in August, a slight decrease from the record $30.1 billion recorded in July.
- The U.S. goods deficit with Japan dropped to $6.4 billion in August, down from $6.8 billion in July.
Said Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) President Scott Paul:
"Our trade deficit with China was $29.9 billion in August, the latest indication that 2013 will be a record-breaker, but not in a good way."
