The Foreign Trade Report shows that China’s total import and export of goods increased from US$ 20.64 billion in 1978 to US$ 4.62 trillion in 2018, becoming the world’s largest country in goods trade, increasing its share of the international market from less than 1% to 11.8%.

Since 2014, China has been the world’s second largest service importer and exporter for six consecutive years.

Not only is the total amount of trade expanding, but the trade structure is also constantly being optimized.

According to estimates, the Foreign Trade Report shows that foreign trade directly and indirectly drives about 180 million people in employment, accounting for more than 20% of the country’s total employment. In addition, the development of foreign trade has driven the import tax, increased the national fiscal revenue, improved the balance of payments and increased foreign exchange reserves. The development of foreign trade has also driven Chinese enterprises to actively participate in the international division of labor, constantly learn and master advanced technologies, standards and production management methods, and promoted industrial upgrading.
