BEIJING, June 17 -- China's export activity may maintain a steady rebound in the coming months as the country is faced with several favorable factors, an official said on Tuesday.
Shen Danyang, spokesman for the Ministry of Commerce (MOC), told a press conference that factors bolstering exports include recovering global demand, domestic support policies and rising confidence among Chinese export companies.
China's exports rose 7 percent year on year to 195 billion U.S. dollars in May, following a 0.9-percent increase in April and sharp declines in March and February, customs data showed.
Shen noted that government measures designed to stabilize foreign trade include a 16-point guideline unveiled by the State Council last month.
An MOC export confidence index based on exporter surveys reached 108.9 points, higher than 100 for a third consecutive month, indicating the export situation will continue to improve in the latter half of 2014.
