The US has connections from all over the world which makes it more convenient for them to communicate whether for political or business purposes. The foreign relations of the US no doubt help the economy of the US in a good way. It is very important for a country to establish good trading but it is very essential as well to establish good connections with other foreign countries. There are so much more opportunities when good connections are already established.
One of the biggest trading relations that the US has is with China, in fact, China is the largest trading partner of the US. China has already been known to have cheaper labor and manufacturing costs if compared to other businesses in other countries. That is what makes China inviting for almost all countries when it comes to business. China, as well, has connections with almost all other countries because they practically create almost similar products, for example, as the US businesses but are obviously cheaper. It has been a long time since China and the US started their trading relations. The US and China are both superpowers and having such business relations can be very beneficial for the businesses in the US.
As already stated some US businesses hire or get materials for their businesses from China because of the cheap labor and manufacturing costs. There are even Chinese businesses in the US because it is very easy for them to also obtain materials from China and there are obviously lots of opportunities for businesses to succeed in the US. US is known to have a very good business standing because almost all, like the Chinese, are business inclined and people there often really focus on how they can earn profits.
The US though, does not only involve itself with China for business purposes. They are also somehow involved politically just like with every other country. Good political relations are very helpful especially today those conditions are getting tougher, not only inside the US but also its relations with other countries. This can be of inconvenience for the US since according to Trump news, US has been having relationship changes with other foreign countries such as North Korea, China, and Russia.
These changes can all affect the businesses in the US and also the economy of the US itself. President Trump has made changes especially since there had been news about the possible attack of North Korea, declaring that whoever has relations with North Korea will no longer be connected to the US. This is again of inconvenience because it has already been established for a long time that China is officially the largest trading partner that the US has. It will be hard to recover if US just suddenly lets go of China as its partner.
Also, not only American businesses will be affected but also other foreign businesses in the US. Since China provides so much for the businesses in America, then it will be difficult for them to find replacements for whatever materials or labor they get cheaper from China. Whatever the reasons are for the US to keep its connections with China, its relations, whether political or business in nature, are very significant not only for their government and businesses in America but are also very significant to the US economy itself.
