Trade Challenges for China


China pointed to robust growth, with export orders returning to growth amid improving foreign demand. However, many analysts also believe exports could lose some momentum in the short term and the advantages of orders transferred from other countries due to coronavirus-related disruptions will begin to abate. The resurgent Covid-19 infections worldwide and constraints in global trade have left some companies grappling with prolonged delivery timeframes and surging prices of raw materials.


Car makers and electronic devices from televisions to smartphones are sounding alarm bells about a global shortage of chips, which is causing manufacturing delays as consumer demand bounces back from the covid-19 crisis. Another biggest trade challenge for China is to ease tensions with the United States. China’s trade surplus with the United States slipped to USD 21.3 billion in March 2021 from USD 23.01 billion in February.
