With the signatures in the book, U.S. product purchases by China will be boosted. This boost amounts to over $200 billion dollars of U.S exports consisting of manufactured goods, energy goods, services, and agricultural goods. In the deal there are also provisions to curb forced technology transfers as well as intellectual property theft.
