The downward issue of the economy is still massive that’s why authorities will intensify the modification of policies according to what Premier Wen Jiabao said in Xinhua News Agency last July 8. With this, the government will promote steady growth in overseas sales. Wen also urged the Chinese exporters to explore the markets throughout Asia and diversify the trading partners in the face of ascending protectionism.
By looking at the latest figures, the government might miss its goal of 10% growth in trade this year. In the first half, imports gained 6.7% while exports rose by 9.2%.
