Abstract

The natural outcome of the transformation of the Chinese economy is its growing expansion in international trade. If in the first period the result of the high involvement of foreign investors operating in China supplying goods to international distribution networks, a rapid growth rate of Chinese exporters has been recorded since the international financial crisis. It deals with the development of China’s bilateral trade relations with the United States, the EU and Japan while pursuing a changing commodity exchange structure, the share of services, high technology and the current development of foreign trade policy.
