China Sept trade surplus with US highest on record: Reuters calculations

[BEIJING] China's trade surplus with the United States in September rose to US$28.08 billion versus US$26.23 billion last month, Chinese customs data on Friday showed.

The surplus was the highest ever with the US for any single month, based on Reuters calculations based on official data going back to 2008.

China's Jan-Sept trade surplus with the US was US$195.54 billion, the data showed.

That could give fresh ammunition to US President Donald Trump, who has long complained that the trade imbalance between the two nations hurts the US economy.
