What’s up with the trade in international flowers?

It’s been a year since the Trump administration announced that the United States would withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a massive 12-nation trade deal that would have expanded American trade with more than a dozen countries.

But now, a new report from the non-partisan Congressional Research Service (CRS) is giving a new look at how trade in global flowers has fared since the U.S. left the pact in late 2017.

The CRS report, which was published Tuesday and is based on a comprehensive survey of global trade data, found that global flower exports are down about 1 percent since the start of the year.

That means, in terms of total trade, U.K. flower exports dropped by almost 10 percent since February, and China’s rose by nearly 7 percent.

China, which has historically been a major importer of U.A. plants, has also seen a sharp drop in flower exports.

But the overall trend of U,K.

exports to China has continued to be strong.

The U.KS. flower industry, which grew from a little over half of total U.B. flower output in 2016 to roughly 24 percent in 2017, now accounts for roughly 40 percent of all global flower production.

“China is the largest importer, accounting for nearly half of all exports of UB flowers to China,” the report reads.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called for a global ban on all U.s. flowers, as a means to prevent a “trade war” that could devastate the global economy.

While China and other countries may not have an immediate interest in stopping U.b. flower imports, the CRS finds that global economic instability could have a profound effect on the U,S.


China’s economy grew at a faster pace in 2017 than it did in 2016, but its exports to the U and U.P. grew much more slowly.

The Trump administration has threatened to impose tariffs on U. b flowers if they do not participate in a bilateral trade agreement with the U., and it is expected to announce a global trade agreement during its first 100 days in office.
