Thursday, November 17, 2011

Another one of these "trade between China and Portuguese language countries" articles in Portuguese, courtesy of data from Macau. The titles of two others I wrote about were:

Trade between China and Portuguese language countries grows 25% from the first half of 2010 to 2011

Trade between China and Portuguese language countries grows 45.07% from January 2010 to January 2011

This time you'll notice a drop in trade for some countries, which I'll highlight in red. Poor Portugal.

Commerce between China and the eight countries that use Portuguese as an official language increased by 26.69% over the first three trimesters of the year, reaching an amount of 86.427 billion dollars - according to official data given out by Macau.

According to official data from customs in China, from January to September the eight Portuguese-speaking countries sold $57.681 billion of goods to China and purchased goods costing $28.809 billion.

During this period Brazil, the principal trading partner of the eight countries, sold $38.330 billion (38.59% increase) and bought $24.075 billion (35.49% increase) from China.

Angola was second: $20.264 billion (34.09% more) sold to China, and bought $1.953 billion (decrease of 0.29%) of goods.

Portugal was next, selling $2.152 billion (15.99% decrease) and buying $818 million (49.58% decrease) of products from China.

Mozambique was in fourth place, selling $529 million (38.02% increase) and buying $153 million (22.39% increase) of goods from China.
