Chinese export orders in distress, China’s largest trade fair unveils

On Sunday, the 5th of May 2019, a Chinese State Media report had revealed that the total value of export orders at China’s largest trade fair, widely seen as an indicator of Chinese exports industry, had contracted from a year earlier, largely weighed down by a much softer-than-anticipated global demand and a trade war with United States, which had already wiped out billions from the global market and contributed caustically to a mass-scale global economic slowdown.

According to the Chinese Official news agency, Xinhua’s report, at the Canton Fair, the export orders were slumped by as much as 1.1 percent to 199.5 billion yuan ($29.6 billion), amid an ongoing tariff talk with United States, which would likely to conceive fruits by this weekend and to reverse the scenario, analysts suggested.

The Canton Fair exhibition, also called as the China Export and Import fair, is held every Autumn and Spring in the Chinese state of Guangzhou and widely seen as a critical determinant of the health of Chinese export industries as beforementioned.

Nevertheless, according to multiple analysts, a boorish trade war with United States was to be blamed for this recent downslope dive of Chinese exports alongside a decline of global demands from a majority of world’s economic superpowers, who had still been vying to avert a steep recession risk.
