“In 2021, my country’s foreign trade import and export showed strong resilience, and delivered a dazzling transcript despite many difficulties and challenges.” On January 14, the spokesperson of the General Administration of Customs and the Division of Statistical Analysis Minister Li Kuiwen said at the press conference on the import and export situation for the whole year of 2021 held by the State Council Information Office.

According to customs statistics, the total value of my country’s import and export of goods trade in 2021 will be 39.1 trillion yuan, an increase of 21.4% over 2020. Among them, exports were 21.73 trillion yuan, an increase of 21.2%; imports were 17.37 trillion yuan, an increase of 21.5%.

Judging from the monthly data, in terms of US dollars, my country’s total export value in December 2021 increased by 20.9% year-on-year, and the total value of imports increased by 19.5% year-on-year, with a trade surplus of 94.46 billion US dollars that month.

In addition, in terms of imports, the recovery of domestic production capacity has increased the import of intermediate products, and the quantity has also increased under the condition of stable prices, indicating that the import structure has improved.

Affected by the global epidemic and the recovery of domestic production capacity, exports maintained a higher-than-expected growth in 2020 despite a relatively high growth rate. Imports, on the other hand, were affected by factors such as domestic industrial demand and rising prices of upstream raw materials, resulting in a significant recovery.

The global epidemic situation is still severe, the external environment has become more complex, severe and uncertain, and the recovery of international demand has slowed down. In addition, superimposing the factors of higher foreign trade base in 2021, the foreign trade operation in 2022 will face certain pressure.

“While facing up to difficulties and challenges, we must also see that my country’s economy is resilient, the fundamentals of long-term improvement will not change, and we have firm confidence in stabilizing the fundamentals of foreign trade.” Li Kuiwen said.
