America's most important trading relationships
In April 2022, America's trade deficit – the value of what's imported compared to the value of what's exported – narrowed by the largest percentage seen in nine years, with exports significantly increasing.
The reason for the gap shrinking is largely related to delays and disruptions in global supply chains. However, a shrinking trade deficit had been one of the goals for former US president Donald Trump when he initiated steel tariffs in 2018, launching a trade war with China.
Since then, the US has started establishing new trade pacts with countries around the world, especially in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.
