Storyline


China's goods trade surplus narrowed by 21.8 percent in the first quarter of this year, said a National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) spokesperson Tuesday at a press briefing on China's economic performance in the first quarter.

China's goods exports rose 7.4 percent year on year in the first three months while imports grew 11.7 percent, resulting in a trade surplus of 326.18 billion yuan (about 51.85 billion U.S. dollars), according to the NBS statistics.

NBS spokesperson Xing Zhihong, who is also head of the NBS Department of Comprehensive Statistics, said the structure of trading has further improved.

The export was still dominated by machinery and electronic products, which account for 59.4 percent of the total volume.

China's trade with its top three trading partners, namely the European Union, the United States and ASEAN, continued to grow by 8.2 percent, 6.3 percent and 13.7 percent respectively.

Trade with countries along the Belt and Road also maintained a good growth momentum. Trade with Russia, Poland and Kazakhstan rose 20.5 percent, 16.6 percent and 16.2 percent respectively.

In the first quarter, industrial enterprises with an annual sales revenue of 20 million yuan or more registered a total export delivery value of 2.7145 trillion yuan, up 7.6 percent year on year.
