China's foreign trade up 11.1 pct in first 11 months 

 China's goods trade rose 11.1 percent year on year to 27.88 trillion yuan (about 4 trillion U.S. dollars) in the first 11 months this year, customs data showed Saturday.

The value has already exceeded the total foreign trade registered last year, said the General Administration of Customs (GAC) in an online statement.

Exports rose 8.2 percent year on year to 14.92 trillion yuan in the January-November period while imports grew 14.6 percent to 12.96 trillion yuan, resulting in a trade surplus of 1.96 trillion yuan, which narrowed by 21.1 percent, the GAC said.
