The ACTING PRESIDENT pro tempore.
Without objection, it Is so order ed.
of this very worthwhile initiative on the
part of President Nixon, we find a continuing
exchange of groups between the
People's R epublic and the United
States-an exchange which I hope will
expand in the years and decades ahead.
At the time of Prcoident Nixon's visit
to Peking, the trade between our two
countries was zero. The Chinese-Amelican
trade has Increased from nothing 2
years ago to $750 million in 1973 and
could exceed $1 billion this year. American
exports to the People's Republic of
China have exceeded imports to this
country by approximately 10 to 1 and
have played a very important part by
contributing more than one-third of the
total favorable American trade balance
