News from General Administration of Customs on Feb. 10 showed that imports and exports continued to recover, and in January 2010 they have reached the same level as in 2008.

According to statistics from the General Administration of Customs, the total volume of imports and exports reached 204.78 billion U.S. dollars in January 2010, up 44.4 percent compared with the same period in 2008. The total volume of exports was 109.47 billion U.S. dollars, up 21 percent, while the total volume of imports was 95.31 billion U.S. dollars, up 85.5 percent. Trade surplus reached 14.16 billion U.S. dollars, down 63.8 percent.

Amid the financial crisis and the Spring Festival, imports and exports slumped in January 2009, resulting in a smaller comparison benchmark as well as larger year-on-year growth in imports and exports. Compared with January 2008, the total volume of imports and exports in January 2010 increased 2.4 percent, indicating that they have returned to the same level as those in January 2008.
