China became the leader of global trading

In 2013 the foreign trade volumes of China reached 4.16 trln USD, an increase of 7.6% compared with the results of 2012. But despite some improvement in the dynamics of key indicators last year, the Government of the People's Republic of China failed to accelerate the growth of foreign trading of the country to the scheduled level of 8%, according to the official data of the General Administration of Customs of China, published on January 10.

Nevertheless, Zheng Yuesheng, representative of the department, noted that the index broke the historical record, since China passed the USA for the first time, becoming the leader of world trading.

It was also reported that in 2013 the China's trade balance surplus totaled 259.75 bln USD. The exports grew by 7.9% - to 2.21 trln USD, the Imports - up 7.3%, to 1.95 trln USD.

According Zh.Yuesheng, the published data are final, and will not be revised in the future, and in 2014 China will continue increasing its trading activity on world markets.
