- Mar 09, 2020-

China is capable of mitigating the impact on its foreign trade caused by the novel coronavirus epidemic and will maintain its trade growth momentum this year, experts and business leaders said on Sunday.

They made the remarks after the General Administration of Customs announced on Saturday that the nation's foreign trade volume totaled 4.12 trillion yuan ($592 billion) in the first two months of this year, falling 9.6 percent year-on-year, mainly affected by the epidemic and the extended Spring Festival holiday.
