BEIJING, KOMPAS.com – China’s economy is well on the path to recovery boosted by strong gains in international trade.

China's imports grew at their fastest pace this year in September, while exports followed suit as more trading partners lifted coronavirus restrictions.

China’s international trade performance has catapulted the recovery of the world's second-biggest economy.

Exports in September rose 9.9 percent from a year earlier, customs data showed on Tuesday, broadly in line with analysts' expectations and up from a solid 9.5 percent increase in August.

The strong international trade performance suggests Chinese exporters are making a brisk recovery from the pandemic's hit to overseas orders.

As the global economy restarts, Chinese firms are rushing to grab market share as their rivals grapple with reduced manufacturing capacity.

"The big picture is that outbound shipments remain strong, with easing demand for Covid-19 related goods such as face masks being mostly offset by a recovery in broader demand for Chinese-made consumer goods," Capital Economics Senior China Economist Julian Evans-Pritchard said.

"A jump in imports suggests that domestic investment spending remains strong."

China's factory activity has also picked up as international trading gradually resumes.
