Exports from China's less developed central and western regions continue to outpace those for coastal areas, according to the General Administration of Customs.

In the January-October period, exports from the central Henan province surged 19.8 percent from a year earlier and those from Jiangxi province rose 18.9 percent.

Shipments from the central Jiangxi province jumped 17.5 percent year-on-year in the first ten months while exports from the western Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region increased 14.6 percent.

Meanwhile, exports from the coastal province of Guangdong went up 11.4 percent year-on-year in the January-October period, and those for Jiangsu province rose 1.1 percent. Zhejiang province recorded an 8.9 percent increase but Shanghai saw exports fall 2.2 percent.

The coastal continues contributing most of China's foreign trade and the combined trade in seven provinces and cities — Guangdong, Jiangsu, Shanghai, Beijing, Zhejiang, Shandong, and Fujian — accounted for 79.4 percent of the country's overall trade, according to the customs agency.
