Dow Jones Newswires: China’s exports fall more than expected in July


China’s exports fell more than expected in July, dragged by continued weakness in global demand, official data showed Tuesday.

Outbound shipments dropped 14.5% from a year earlier in July, compared with the 12.4% decline in June, the General Administration of Customs said. The result was worse than the 12.0% fall expected by economists in a Wall Street Journal poll.

Chinese imports declined 12.4% from a year earlier in July, compared with June’s 6.8% fall and the 5.0% drop expected by surveyed economists.

That put China’s trade surplus at $80.6 billion in July, wider than the $70.62 billion surplus in June and the $70.3 billion surplus expected by economists.
