China's December exports rise, imports shrink

China's December exports rise, imports shrink | International Trade | Scoop.it
Chinese demand for imported oil, iron ore, food and other goods has cooled as economic growth slowed, falling to a five-year low of 7.3 percent in the quarter ending in September. Major markets for Chinese goods including the United States should "stage a slight recovery this year, which should provide support to Chinese exports," said Julian Evans-Pritchard of Capital Economics in a report. [...] demand in China is "likely to remain subdued" and hopes for a rebound in investment or the real estate industry "will be disappointed," said Evans-Pritchard. The gap between strong exports and weak Chinese demand meant the country's global trade surplus nearly doubled in December, expanding 94 percent over a year earlier to $49.6 billion.

Texas leads nation with record export numbers

Texas leads nation with record export numbers | International Trade | Scoop.it
The state's largest manufacturing export category was petroleum and coal products, which accounted for $60.6 billion of Texas' total goods exports in 2013. Oil refiners have been helped by cheaper crude oil flowing in from the Eagle Ford Shale and the Permian Basin. If Congress lifts an export ban on crude oil — as producers are pushing for — Texas' export sales probably would jump significantly because of booming drilling activity in its shale regions. The Obama administration will need fast-track authority for both TPP and T-TIP from Congress before either trade agreement can stand a chance for enactment. Fast-track requires Congress to take an up-or-down vote on negotiated trade agreements without amendments. After Froman's briefing to invited San Antonians on trade talks, a session closed to media coverage, San Antonio Chamber of Commerce CEO and President Richard Perez said he puts the odds of fast-track approval by the end of President Barack Obama's term at 50-50. The chamber usually communicates its policy preferences with local members of Congress, Perez said, but might begin lobbying nonlocal members when it comes to broadening U.S. trade agreements, Perez said.
