China November services trade deficit $25.4 billion - forex regulator

BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s trade deficit in services widened to $25.4 billion in November from $20.9 billion in October, the foreign exchange regulator said on Tuesday.

November’s deficit was largely due to a $23.1 billion gulf in spending between foreign tourists and the Chinese, who splurge more abroad than foreign tourists in China, data from the State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE) showed.

In the January-November period, the trade deficit in services was $234 billion.
