Chinese export growth remains surprisingly robust, offsetting broader weakness

HONG KONG—China’s export machine remained surprisingly resilient in July after a strong rebound from the spring’s tough Covid-19 restrictions, again defying forecasts of a slowdown in global demand for Chinese-made goods.

Chinese shipments to the rest of the world hit $332.9 billion in July, the General Administration of China Customs said on Sunday, an increase of 18 percent from a year earlier. The reading beat a median growth forecast of 15.6% among economists polled by The Wall Street Journal. The year-over-year growth rate in July represents an acceleration from the 17.9% pace recorded in June.
