China is not only the world’s second largest economy but also the largest exporter by value, and has been the largest exporter of goods in the world since 2009. Strong foreign demands for China products will continue even more for the years to come. China’s rise to economic power simply can’t be ignored. Its import and export value in 1995 accounted for 3% or $280.9 billion of global trade and has since skyrocketed to $4.6 trillion or 12.4 percent of global trade in 2018.
