Nov. 16 (Bloomberg) -- The outlook for China’s exports over the next few months and in the first quarter of next year is “not optimistic,” Shen Danyang, spokesman for the Ministry of Commerce, said at a regular briefing in Beijing today.
He cited “uncertainties” in the external environment, cooling demand from western economies and rising costs for Chinese exporters. Overseas sales will also be affected by trade conflicts and protectionism, he said.
