(MENAFN - Saudi Press Agency) The United States replaced the EU in 2012 as the largest market for Chinese exports, buying 319.4 billion of goods in the first 11 months, UPI quoted Beijing as announcing.

The Chinese Commerce Ministry said U.S. purchases during the period represented an 8.2 percent increase from the same period of 2011. During the same period, China imported 119.2 billion of U.S. goods, up 8.1 percent year-on-year.

Thus, the two-way volume of trade between China and the United States totaled 438.62 billion, giving China a trade surplus of more than 200 billion in the 11 months of 2012. That was up sharply from its surplus of 148.3 billion a year ago.

Chinese exports to the European Union declined 4.1 percent in the same 11-month period to 302.3 billion, China Daily reported.

China's trade with Japan dropped by 2.9 percent during the 11-month period.

China's total foreign trade in the first 11 months of 2012 rose 5.8 percent year-on-year to 3.5 trillion, much less than the government's target of 10 percent.

One analyst told China Daily U.S.-China trade will continue to increase next year as the U.S. economy is recovering.
