MARKET BUZZ: China Markets Higher After Trade Data
Imports for the first three quarters were 3.44 million tonnes, down 9.4 percent on the same period past year, customs said.
The September trade surplus reached $28.5 billion, compared to $47 billion in August. Imports rose 18.7 percent to $169.8 billion, an improvement from the previous month's 13.3 percent. The rise beat the poll's forecast for a 15% gain.
In renminbi terms, exports advanced 9% and imports grew 19.5% in September.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross recently pressed China on the "need to rebalance bilateral trade and investment relations" and urged it to take "meaningful action" on trade issues.
China's imports from North Korea fell for a seventh straight month in September, dropping 37.9% year-on-year as Beijing implemented the latest United Nations trade sanctions aimed at persuading Pyongyang to rein in its nuclear and missile programmes. USA officials have resumed criticizing Chinese policy after President Donald Trump said in April he would temporarily shelve disputes while Washington and Beijing cooperated on North Korea.
