China’s foreign trade to remain steady in 2018

China’s foreign trade will maintain steady growth in 2018, as the country’s economy posted stable performance amid mounting external uncertainties, according to a report released by the Ministry of Commerce.

China’s foreign trade saw fast growth in the first three quarters, the report said.

The country’s goods trade rose 11.1 percent year-on-year to 27.88 trillion yuan (about 4 trillion US dollars) in the first 11 months this year, customs data showed.

Exports rose 8.2 percent year-on-year to 14.92 trillion yuan in the January-November period while imports grew 14.6 percent to 12.96 trillion yuan, resulting in a trade surplus of 1.96 trillion yuan, which narrowed by 21.1 percent.
