The value of trade in China’s goods in 2013 is set to exceed that of the United States, making China the world’s top trader for the first time.
“Judging from the current statistics, there is a very high possibility that the value of China’s goods trade will have exceeded the US in 2013,” said Wang Haifeng, a researcher with the Institute for International Economic Research at the National Development and Reform Commission.
China is scheduled to announce the 2013 annual trade figure next week. The US Department of Commerce will publish its figure in February.
