Chinese Trade Deficit!

Yesterday China reported that imports ($400bn) had exceeded exports ($399bn) in Q1 ‘11. This tiny deficit, China’s first in 7 years is an encouraging development for the world economy. It comes after 2 successive years of import growth outpacing exports. Hopefully this trend will continue. If so China will stop printing Yuan (to keep the exchange rate where it wants) and thus reduce domestic inflationary pressures.
