China Posts First Trade Gap Since March 2018

China unexpectedly posted a trade deficit of $7.09 billion in January-February 2020 combined, missing expectations of a $24.6 billion surplus. It is the first trade gap since March 2018, as the coronavirus outbreak halted production, disrupted business and supply chains and lowered demand. Year-on-year, exports slumped 17.2%, much worse than forecasts of a 14% drop while imports shrank 4%, better than forecasts of a 15% decline. The trade surplus with the US narrowed to $25.37 billion from $42.16 billion a year earlier.
