Chinese trade surplus declines significantly in March

As expected, the trade data were then also published on Tuesday. Chinese exports rose by 30.6% year-on-year in U.S. dollar terms last month. And thus, fell short of analysts’ expectations by just under 5%. Imports in U.S. dollars to China, on the other hand, exceeded expectations by nearly 15% in March.

The Chinese trade surplus thus declined to $13.8 billion. More than $38 billion more than had been expected.

Which could be taken as a hint that we will see even stronger numbers in the near future.
