China Exports  1983-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast | News

Exports from China declined 2.7 percent from a year earlier to USD 174.12 billion in March 2018, missing market expectations of a 10 percent rise, and down from a 44.5 percent surge in February. It was the first drop in exports since February last year due to seasonal factors around the Lunar New Year holiday. Among major trading partners, exports fell to the US (-5.6 percent), the EU (-7 percent), Japan (-3.7 percent), South Korea (-4.2 percent) and Australia (-1.3 percent), but rose to ASEAN countries (1.4 percent) and Taiwan (8.1 percent). For the first quarter as a whole, exports still grew 14.1 percent. Trade tensions between China and the US have been escalating, after President Donald Trump approved a possible tariff hike on USD 50 billion of Chinese goods. Trump is demanding Beijing take steps to narrow its trade deficit with the US, which stood at a record USD 375.2 billion last year. Exports in China averaged 629.45 USD HML from 1983 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 2317.86 USD HML in December of 2017 and a record low of 13 USD HML in January of 1984.
