November sees record trade surplus
China’s trade surplus in November was its largest trade surplus in more than four years.
The trade surplus in November, $ 33.8 billion, was the highest since 2009, when the government launched a largescale stimulus package.
November exports increased 12.7 percent year-on-year to $202.21 billion, while imports stood at $168.4 billion, up 5.3 percent year-on-year, the slowest rise in imports since July, the General Administration of Customs said.
The improvement of overseas demand increased China’s chances of securing an 8 percent trade growth target this year. (Photo 2)
