Storyline


China enjoyed sustained growth in foreign trade with both its major trade partners and the Belt and Road countries in 2017, due to multiple projects across the country to build and improve facilities and services for cross-border trade .

The European Union, the United States and the ASEAN countries remained China's major trade partners over the past year, according to Huang Songping, spokesman for the General Administration of Customs on Friday .

Statistics from the General Administration of Customs show that China's import and export with its top three trade partners grew by 15.5, 15.2 and 16.6 percent respectively in 2017, accounting for 41.8 percent of the national total value.

Moreover, the Belt and Road Initiative has injected energy into the country's foreign trade. Statistics show that trades numbers with the countries along the routes increased by 17.8 percent, which is 3.6 percentage points higher than the overall national level in the same period. To put this in perspective, trade with Russia, Poland and Kazakhstan grew by 23.9, 23.4 and 40.7 percent respectively, higher than the national level.

An example of how China has improved its facilities over the last year is the installation of modern equipments at Yangshan Port in Shanghai. Goods are now loaded quicker onto cargo ships before being transported to Yangluo Port in Wuhan, capital city of Hubei province in Central China where they are transferred onto trains bound for Europe. The combination of railway and sea transportation systems has paved the way for trade with the Belt and Road countries.

"After transforming and upgrading the functions, we connected the Yangluo Port with the Xianglushan Station of the Jiangbei Railway and made it a joint point between the Belt and Road countries and the Yangtze River Economic Belt," said Dong Zheng, director of the railway-sea combined transport project of the Yangluo Port.

While improving facilities has been a major player in the increase for foreign trade, China has also strived to improve and enhanced the quality of its services and products to its trade partners.

For instance, in the Yamal natural gas project jointly developed with Russia and France, the Qingdao branch of China Offshore Oil Engineering Company (COOEC) made substantial innovations in pipelines and equipment insulations for extreme temperature of up to minus 50 degrees Celsius which have led to orders totaling over 10.1 billion yuan.

"We made breakthroughs in 11 core technologies including cryogenic insulation and extreme cold welding and gained a pass to the international high-end oil and gas equipment market. The Yamal Project also marks China's first export of core natural gas technique," said Zhuang Hongchang, deputy manager of the Yamal Project at COOEC.

In addition to the achievements mentioned above, China has also seen improvements in its import and export mix, as reflected by the trade development in the east province of Shandong.

"Foreign trade in Shandong has showed a trend of high-quality development, as high added-value products like metal-working machines, ships and personal computers all grew by more than 20 percent in export value and became new growth points," according to Shang Wen, deputy director of the Statistics Department of the Qingdao Customs District.
