China hid the January trade data


China postpones the publication of January import and export figures by one month. This data would actually be published this Friday by the Chinese customs.

According to customs, the delay has to do with a lack of information. The January figures will be merged with the February trade figures.

China’s trade figures at the beginning of the year are often distorted by the Chinese New Year. The country is also struggling with the outbreak of the new corona virus, which is causing considerable disruption to economic activity in China.
