China’s COVID-19 economic recovery as imports and exports surge – World Economic Forum

  • China’s imports and exports have grown quickly in recent months, suggesting the economy is recovering from COVID-19.
  • Imports increased by 13.2% in September, returning to growth from a fall of 2.1% in August.
  • China’s trade surplus with the United States has narrowed to $30.75 billion in September from $34.24 billion in August.
