China's total export-import volume between January and July decreased by 22.7 percent year-on-year to $1146.71 billion. Imports and exports volume for July amounted to $200 billion, illustrating the falling off in foreign trade, Yao said.

The amount of direct Taiwanese investment in the Chinese mainland totalled $1 billion in the first half of the year, down 14.94 percent year-on-year, and the trade volume between the two shrank 35.1 percent to $52.53 billion in the same period, he said.
