China foreign trade to stabilise and improve - commerce ministry

BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s imports and exports are expected to stabilise and improve in the near future, the Ministry of Commerce said in its quarterly report on trends in the country’s foreign trade.

With uncertainties and unstable factors in foreign trade expected to remain, each region and government department should effectively implement policies to support the development of foreign trade, the commerce ministry report said.

China’s exports in the first quarter of the year rose 8.2 percent from the same period last year, while imports surged by 24.0 percent.

China’s foreign trade development is expected to face a better environment in 2017 compared to the past two years, said the commerce ministry report.
