Chinese Trade Strong on High Global Demand

China reported better-than-expected trade figures for the month of June as a recovery in global demand spurred exports.

In June, exports from the world’s second largest economy posted a 11.3 percent increase from a year ago and a 17.2 percent rise in imports over the same period in dollar terms, Reuters reported citing China’s General Administration of Customs.

That left China with the a trade balance of $42.77 billion for the month, higher than a Reuters poll forecast of $42.44 billion.
