Since 2009, China has been one of the top two markets for U.S. agricultural exports, from dry bulk shipments, and soybeans are the main agricultural products exported to China.In 2017 alone, 47% of America's soyabeans are exported, with China accounting for more than half of its total exports, with a total of 32.8 million tonnes, or $14 billion.

The EIA estimates that U.S. crude and liquid production will continue to grow to 2042, while natural gas production will continue to rise to 2050.LNG, known as liquefied natural gas (LNG), is expected to dominate U.S. exports.Due to the completion of the LNG export facility currently under construction, the future LNG export of the United States is expected to increase substantially, especially for Asian countries.In November 2017, the US President's visit to China in two days, trump enterprises of China and the United States signed a bilateral trade and economic co-operation of record large amount of single - up to $253.5 billion, amount of natural gas related agreement accounted for more than half.
