China’s trade data in January came in better than expected as front-loading ahead of the Lunar New Year boosted sales, custom data showed on Thursday.
January exports unexpectedly grew 9.1% from a year earlier, beating the expectation of a 3.2% drop, data from China’s General Administration of Customs showed.
Imports also only fell 1.5%, much less than the expected 10% fall and narrowing from December’s 7.6% drop.
That left the country with a trade surplus of $39.16 billion for the month, better than forecasts of $33.5 billion. (14.02.2019)
