 中国7月份出口额比去年同期仅增长1%,显示最近中国经济在世界经济的影响下增速减缓。

中国海关总署星期五发布的这一数据大大低于6月份11.3%的同比增幅,也远低于很多经济学家的预测。中国7月份的进口额同比增长仅为4.7%,低于6月份的6.3%。经济学家曾经预测至少增长7%。

中国7月份的贸易顺差为251亿美元,低于去年同期的315亿美元。北京为今年设定的贸易总额增幅为10%。

这些贸易数据可能促使中国领导人采取更有力的措施来刺激经济增长。中国政府今年已经两次降低利率,并开始对一系列公共设施项目投放资金。


China's exports grew just one percent in July compared to the same period a year earlier, the latest sign of continued stagnation within the global economy.

The figures released Friday by China's customs bureau were far below the 11.3 percent rate posted in June, and well short of many economists' forecasts.  Imports in July were also weak, rising just 4.7 percent from a year earlier compared to the 6.3 percent mark posted in June.  Economists had forecast an increase of at least 7 percent.

China's trade surplus in July was $25.1 billion, down from $31.5 billion a year earlier.  Beijing has set a goal of 10 percent growth in total trade this year.

These trade figures may prompt Chinese leaders to take more aggressive actions to stimulate the economy growth.  The government has already cut interest rates twice this year and begun spending on a number of public works projects.
