The Report reviews China’s foreign trade performance in 2012 and in the first quarter of 2013. China’s foreign trade development in 2012 was faced with multiple difficulties and pressure which including depressed external demand, rising cost and growing frictions, import and export growth dipped to single digits. In response to the adverse changing situations, Chinese government timely introduced policy measures to stabilize foreign trade growth, which ensured a stabilizing and pick-up in foreign trade, China’s import and export share in international market was further increasing, mode transformation and restructuring was accelerated, and the quality of development was improving steadily. In the first quarter of 2013, with signs of recovery in the global market demand, policy effects of stabilizing foreign trade growth further revealed, China’s foreign trade maintained its rally momentum.
The Report believes that compared with the previous year, China’s foreign trade development in 2013 will hopefully face a somewhat improved environment both at home and abroad, but with complicated restricting factors, challenges and difficulties are still big. If the external conditions are not much changed, China’s import and export in 2013 will carry on its steady momentum of growth, with a slightly higher pace from a year earlier, but a dramatic increase is unlikely.
The Report points out, China will maintain consistency and stability in its foreign trade policy, and go on implementing of various policies for stabilizing foreign trade growth. Based on this, China will focus on its long-term goal of speeding up the transformation of the pattern of foreign trade development and restructuring, encouraging the enterprises to increase input in technological innovation, improving the quality and grades of the products, setting up international marketing network, actively developing the emerging markets, promoting the upgrading and gradient transfer of processing trade. Meanwhile, China will further expand imports to ensure a balanced foreign trade growth.
