Boeing Reuters:  The United States and China on Wednesday agreed on $45 billion in U.S. export deals and to give U.S. companies greater access to China's $88 billion-plus government contracts market at the start of Chinese President Hu Jintao's four-day state visit.

White House officials said the agreements included China's "final" approval of a $19 billion contract to buy 200 Boeing (BA.N) aircraft for delivery between 2011 and 2013.

"From machinery to software, from aviation to agriculture, these deals will support some 235,000 American jobs -- and that includes many manufacturing jobs," U.S. President Barack Obama said at a joint press conference with Hu.
