The value of exports increased by only one percent year-on-year, while imports rose by 4.7 percent year-on-year, thus narrowing the country’s trade surplus.

From January to July, the value of China’s total imports and exports reached US$ 2.168 trillion, up 7.1 percent year-on-year. While exports earned US$ 1.131 trillion, growing at 7.8 percent year-on-year, imports were worth US$ 1.037 trillion, rising at 6.4 percent year-on-year. Thus, China achieved a trade surplus of US$ 94.1 billion during the seven-month period.
