China says trade likely to grow at double-digit rate this year if trend continues
China's exports denominated in yuan rose 9.0 percent in September, while yuan-denominated imports jumped 19.5 percent.
Trade improved in the first nine months of the year due to a better international environment and as stronger global demand boosted exports, a spokesman for the General Administration of Customs told a briefing.
Higher commodity prices boosted import and export values, though high base effects led to a slowdown in year-on-year trade growth in the third quarter, customs said.
