EXPORTS from China fell in August as an intensifying trade dispute with the US took a heavier than expected toll on the country?s manufacturing sector, reports London's the Financial Times.

China's exports decreased one per cent last month compared with a year earlier, according to the customs administration. The decline compares with a 3.3 per cent rise in exports year on year in July.



Goldman Sachs had forecast that there would be a two per cent increase in exports in August because it expected buyers of Chinese goods to 'front-load' orders before a new round of US tariffs kicked in on September 1. The decline in exports was accompanied by a 5.6 per cent drop in imports in August, unchanged from July.
