Besides, in the first half of 2008, total exports reflected a year-on-year increase of 21.9 percent. However, it was about 5.7 percentage points lower from the growth rate of the corresponding period last year.

Export growth in the month of June fell to 17.6 percent arousing concerns among various sector, but with rebound in July exports, the total in the first seven months of this year achieved an annual rise of 22.6 percent, 0.7 percentage points higher than the growth rate obtained last year in the same period.

While exports to EU in the first half of 2008 touched $165.04 billion, up 27.1 percent than last year; those to US fetched $140.39 billion, posting an increase of 9.9 percent. This apart, exports to Japan also soared by 15.9 percent, earning China $65.48 billion.
