Asian markets fall as China reports slowdown in exports

Tuesday 04:14 GMT

Shares were lower in Asia on Monday, extending the latest losses on Wall Street, as China reported a slowdown in exports.

China said Monday that its exports to the U.S. contracted in December although its overall trade surplus with the U.S. hit a record $323 billion in 2018. Exports to the U.S. rose 11.3% to $478.4 billion for the year despite punitive tariffs imposed by President Donald Trump in a fight over Chinese technology ambitions.

December trade report shows China’s exports drop, raising risks for global economy

Tuesday 04:14 GMT

China’s exports unexpectedly fell the most in two years in December and imports also contracted, pointing to further weakness in the world’s second-largest economy in 2019 and deteriorating global demand.

Adding to policymakers’ worries, data on Monday showed China posted its biggest trade surplus with the United States on record in 2018, which could prompt U.S. President Donald Trump to turn up the heat on Beijing in their cantankerous trade dispute.

Tuesday 04:14 GMT

Despite Washington's efforts, China's trade surplus with the US grew by more than 17 percent in 2018, according to data provided by Beijing.

US President Donald Trump has repeatedly slammed China's trade surplus with the US and the country's allegedly unfair trade practices. In 2018, the US imposed billions of dollars worth of tariffs on Chinese products, prompting retaliation from Beijing and a trade war that analysts fear could escalate further and damage the global economy.

Kamala Harris criticises those 'sowing hate' but stays quiet on presidential run

Tuesday 04:14 GMT

Kamala Harris, the junior Democratic senator from California, has told a sold-out theater in Los Angeles how she would govern – hypothetically – as president of the United States, portraying herself as an early advocate of criminal justice reform who stood up to big banks during the foreclosure crisis.

Harris, California’s attorney general from 2011 until she joined the US Senate in 2017, did not announce a run for the presidency, but she all but gave a presidential address, weaving her own her own personal biography – her mother, her husband and her children – into a liberal political platform.
