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)
