Ministry of Commerce: China’s foreign trade outlook grim

The outlook for China’s foreign trade remained grim but the full-year target of 10-percent rise will still be possible to achieve, the Ministry of Commerce (MOC) said Tuesday.

The country might register a trade surplus in 2012, which will narrow from last year’s trade surplus of 155.14 billion U.S. dollars, MOC spokesman Shen Danyang said at a press conference here.
