Chinese statistics is a special, one of its kind statistics. It gives us many reasons to doubt the reality of this word.
China exported more in June than a year earlier. Imports from the World Factory also rose year-on-year, Chinese customs reports. Economists expected a decline for both imports and exports.
Exports rose 0.5 percent, while economists generally accounted for a 2 percent decline. Imports climbed 2.7 percent, while a 9 percent decline was forecast here.
Rising imports and exports point to rising demand for Chinese products as many economies gradually reopen after lockdowns to curb the corona virus.
