China’s trade environment is grim and complex but opportunities remain, while Beijing's competitive advantage remains unchanged, according to Yu Jianhua, Director of the General Administration of Customs. Speaking at a press conference, Yu said moves by some countries to promote decoupling, and financial market volatility in some western nations, had presented a challenge for China to promote stability and quality in foreign trade. The government will “go all out to promote trade” and help enterprises make full use of agreements such as Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership. The momentum of foreign trade in the first two months is expected to continue this year, Yu said.
