Exports, imports increased in 2014
China’s exports rose 6.1 percent year on year in 2014, while imports increased 0.4 percent, customs data revealed.
Last year, the country’s total exports and imports value increased 3.4 percent year on year.
China’s consumer inflation remained weak in December while price declines at the factory gate level continued to deepen, suggesting weakness in the world’s second-largest economy but will create space for policy makers to take easing measures.
Growth in the consumer price index, the main gauge of inflation, rebounded to 1.5 percent in December from November’s 1.4 percent, its slowest increase since November 2009, the National Bureau of Statistics said. (Photo 4)
