Export growth rate somewhat declined but foreign direct investment increased significantly.

In the first three quarters, total imports and exports reached US $1.9671 trillion, a year-on-year climb of 25.2 percent, 1.7 percentage points higher in growth-rate over the same period last year.

Among them, export value registered $1.074 trillion, a hike of 22.3 percent, but down 4.8 points in growth. Import value totaled to $893 billion, recording a rise of 29 percent, and 9.9 points higher in growth-rate.
