Trump’s Trade War Spurs Chinese Export Rush to Beat Tariffs

China’s exports still soaring despite trade war

(CNN) – China and the United States are locked in a trade war, but you wouldn’t know it from looking at Chinese exports.

They leaped almost 16% in October compared with the same month a year earlier. That was significantly higher than analysts had forecast and even stronger than last month’s growth.

The performance is surprising because October was the first full month during which new US tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods were in effect. Economists and Chinese government officials said recently that they expected export growth to slow in the final months of the year.

China’s exports hold up despite US tariffs

China’s exports to the United States and the rest of the world saw a surprise jump in October, data showed Thursday, suggesting businesses are ramping up trans-Pacific shipments before higher tariffs kick in.

Relations between the world’s top two economies have soured sharply this year as US President Donald Trump slapped higher taxes on roughly half of Chinese imports and threatened to hit the other half.

Top Chinese officials are currently in Washington, with hopes that those talks could pave the way for a breakthrough on trade later this month when Trump meets Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G20 summit in Argentina.
