China and the United States have maintained normal communications on the trade and economic fronts, Gao Feng, spokesman of China's Ministry of Commerce, said on Thursday.
Gao made the remarks at a press conference when asked about developments in trade between the two countries.
“China’s trade with the US increased 40 percent year-on-year in the first seven months of 2021. Imports from the US rose 50.4 percent, while exports increased 36.9 percent year-on-year,” Gao said. “Data shows that there is high-level of complementarity in the bilateral trade.”
