China's trade with North Korea slumps as nuclear sanctions bite

China's goods trade volume rose 16.6 percent to 20.29 trillion yuan ($3.08 trillion) in the first three quarters of this year, official data showed Friday.

That is the joint-highest monthly level this year, tying the figure from March.

China's exports have now grown for seven consecutive months.

China exports and imports both increase

China's foreign trade will likely grow at a double-digit pace this year if current conditions continue, the General Administration of Customs said. The rise beat the poll's forecast for a 15% gain.

Once again, China's imports were led by industrial resources as a year-long construction boom shows no signs of flagging and factories kept humming, boosting demand for materials from steel to copper.

Exports to the United States grew 13.8 percent on-year from 8.4 percent in August and hit a record $40.9 billion.

China's global trade surplus in September shrank 38.6 percent from the same time a year ago to $28.5 billion.

His remarks appeared to have been directed at a CNN report on Wednesday that said North Korean seafood was making its way into the Chinese city of Hunchun despite the latest ban.

China's total trade with North Korea between January and September rose 3.7% to US$4.03 billion, with the growth rate declining from 7.5% over the first eight months of the year.

United Kingdom to provide £557m funding for new renewable energy projects
This fantastic cost reduction is a reminder of what innovative industry can deliver when backed by competitive auctions. The UK Government has launched a scheme to invest up to £10 million in low carbon heating technologies.

But Evans-Pritchard said the figures were skewed because there were more working days last month compared with last year's period, as the almost week-long Mid-Autumn Festival holiday was held in September 2016. The trade surplus was the lowest in six months.

China-U.S. ties have also been strained by demands that Beijing do more to pressure North Korea over Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs.

However, analysts have repeatedly warned that China's growing debt mountain still poses risks to its economy.
