  I. Main features of imports and exports of Jilin Province from January to August

  1. The imports and exports of August rallied strongly. Following the consecutive decline in May, June and July, the imports and exports rebounded vigorously in August, attaining RMB¥ 11.3 billion, which was the 3rd highest this year, marking a year-on-year growth of 11%. The gradual lessening growth of imports and exports since the beginning of the year was curbed. January-August, the cumulative increase rose by 1.1% in comparison with that of the previous seven months.

  2. The growth of imports and exports varied much from region to region. From January to August, the imports and exports of Jilin City and Yanbian Prefecture maintained quite good growth, and their growth margins were both over 20%; the imports and exports of the three regions of Siping, Baishan and Baicheng failed to reverse their plunge of imports and exports over 20%. Changchun, after its decline of imports and exports from January to July, embraced growth in this sector once again, achieving growth of 0.4%. Liaoyuan witnessed slight growth in imports and exports while Tonghua saw its imports and exports drop slightly.

  3. Most of the major enterprises maintained growth in imports and exports. From January to August, of the top 100 importing and exporting enterprises of Jilin Province, 68 realized growth of imports and exports (including as many as 72 enterprises that grew in exports), which played an active role to the imports and exports development of Jilin Province. In the currently month, FAW Group’s imports and exports rebounded by 0.4%, which was still lower than the provincial average. January-August, Zijin Copper and other top 10 enterprises with growing imports and exports had netted growth of 7.66 billion yuan, while FAW Import & Export Company and other top 10 enterprises faced with decreasing imports and exports had netted decrease of 6.55 billion yuan from their imports and exports.

  4. The exports of the broad-heading commodities grew well, while the imports of agro-products dropped by a big margin. From January to August, of the eight important broad-heading commodity exports accounting for 92% of the province’s total exports, only the exports of rail passenger cars and parts and pharmaceutical products dropped and their decrease were 30.9% and 0.9% respectively, while the export margins of agro-products, automobiles and parts, woodware and furniture were over 10%. The exports of light-industry and textile products, petrochemical products and metallurgical products grew slightly. Of the five important import commodities accounting for 83% of the province’s total imports, the imports of agro-products continued with the sharp decrease, and the decrease margin reached 45.1%. The imports of metallurgical products maintained the good trend, with growth of 26.5%. Jilin Province grew by 2.3% in its exports and 0.4% in its imports of mechanical and electrical products, and it also grew by 5.2% in its exports and 8.1% in its imports of hi-tech products.

  5. The imports from and exports to our surrounding countries revealed a good trend. From January to August, among the top 10 trade markets of our province, Jilin Province was faced with a downturn of imports and exports in the markets of Germany, Slovakia, America, Belgium and Thailand, but realized rather good growth in imports from and exports to all the other markets. The imports from and exports to the three markets of Japan, ROK and Russia grew by over 20%. ROK, America and Japan were the top three large export markets, and Germany, Japan and Slovakia were the top three import source countries to our province.

  6. The imports and exports of general trade increased slightly while those of the state-owned enterprises witnessed decrease. From January to August, the imports and exports of general trade of our province were RMB¥ 69.82 billion, up by 2.2% year-on-year; the imports and exports of processing trade were RMB¥ 6.71 billion, down by 3.7% year-on-year; the imports and exports of the frontier small-amount trade realized substantial growth and the growth margin was as much as 254.5%; the imports and exports of foreign-funded enterprises achieved growth by 8.8%, while the imports and exports of state-owned enterprises and private enterprises fell by 4.4% and 2.2% respectively.

  II. Several concerns about our province’s foreign trade

  1. FAW Group’s depressed imports and exports are the keys to impact our province’s foreign trade. FAW Group’s imports and exports increased by 15.8% in August, which reversed its imports and exports decline in the previous seven months and re-achieved growth by 0.4%, but this growth margin was 3.5% lower than the provincial average. It failed to play an active boosting role to our province’s foreign trade development and exerted a rather huge pressure on attaining the annual goal of the foreign trade task. If FAW Group is excluded, the growth of imports and exports of the province would be 8.5% from January to August this year.

  2. Growth of exports in foreign trade showed a declining situation. In the previous seven months, the growth of exports in our province’s foreign trade was over 10%, but the growth dropped to 9.1% from January to August, lower than the national average by 3.9%. In August alone, our province’s exports fell by 1.4% year-on-year, and the amount of exports decreased by RMB¥ 35.12 million year-on-year and by 2.1% over the previous month, with the amount of exports decreasing by RMB¥ 51.5 million over the previous month, mainly due to the export decline of the four enterprises of Changchun Rail Car Co., Ltd., the Changchun Fengzhihang Logistics Co., Ltd., the Jilin Jimeng Acrylic Fibers, the Jilin Beisha Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., etc. The above four enterprises’ net decrease of export amount totaled RMB¥ 170 million in August.
