July 13 , 2015
China’s exports rose in June after three months of decline.
In yuan terms, exports increased by 2.1% compared to last year, to $187 billion.
However, imports in the world’s second largest economy dropped for the eighth straight month. Chinese imports were down 6.7%, making the trade surplus rise by 45%.
According to the country’s General Administration of Customs, the Greek debt crisis, together with increasing labor costs, weak demand, and a stronger currency were affecting trade.
