Exports of Christmas commodities in north China's Hebei Province surged in August despite contraction in trade amid world economic slowdown.

In the first eight months, exports of Christmas commodities rose to 6.69 million dollars, up 6.4 percent from the same period of last year, according to the customs.

Privately owned businesses have been driving the export rise, while companies with foreign investment have witnessed a slump, sources with the customs said.

Exports of Christmas commodities from privately owned companies rose 25 percent year-on-year to 5.67 million dollars in the first eight months, accounting for 85 percent of the total export.

In contrast, exports from foreign investment companies dropped 52 percent to 773,000 dollars during the same period, the customs said.
