China's exports, imports beat forecasts in June

China reported that exports and imports rose stronger than expected in June, supported by steady world demand for Chinese goods.

Exports gained 11.3 percent year-to-year to $196.6 billion, while imports rose 17.2 percent to $153.8 billion.

As a result, China posted a trade surplus of $42.77 billion for the month, while economist polled by Reuters had expected $42.44 billion.

The International Monetary Fund expects in 2017 China's economic growth could slow to 6.6 percent from last year’s 6.7 percent.
