Top 10 Countries With the Highest Exports to China

Which are the countries with the highest exports to China? Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it. According to the World Economic Forum, China’s economy sits at $11 trillion, or nearly 15% of the world’s total. The country itself is the largest export economy in the world, with China’s top exports going to the United States (over 18% of the total value), but that doesn’t mean it needs for nothing from the rest of the countries. There’s no self-sufficient nation on the planet.

In total, in 2016, China imported products of $1.6 trillion, a good part of it coming from its main partners, the USA and Europe, although other nations also make the list. So, what we were interested in was a list of China’s imports by country and we found this information by looking for China’s imports and exports data, so we could get a better picture. What does China import most, or what are China’s export products?

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three countries with the highest exports to China from their list.

The first country is Thailand. So what does China import from Thailand? Well, the product with the largest value it imports is rubber, as well as other articles made of rubber. The list continues with electrical machinery and equipment, mechanical appliances, nuclear reactors, plastics, optical, photographic, cinematographic, medical or surgical equipment, wood, organic chemicals, vegetables, and more. Fruits, cereal, precious stones, metals and pearls, fish and other aquatic animals, are also on the list. THe next country is Brazil. Brazil’s exports to China oil seeds and oleaginous fruits, ores, mineral fuels, and oils, pulp of wood or other fibrous cellulosic material, meat, sugars, iron and steel, tobacco, aircraft, spacecraft and other parts. Cotton, salt, wood, paper, copper, animal or vegetable fats and oils are also on the list. The last country for today is Australia. Its export to China coming up to $70.8 billion, or 4.5% of China’s imports. The number is 4% less than it was in 2015, data shows. The largest part of the number comes from buying ores, slag and ash, nearly half the sum. Then, China also imports mineral fuels and oils, commodities, pearls, precious stones and metals, wool, copper, wood, meat, medicines, cereals, beverages, cotton, dairy, eggs, honey, and more. The list further includes fruits, salt, aluminum, oil seeds and nuts, as well as various types of machinery.
