China's exports increase strongly

7:53 am on 11 March 2010

China's exports in February grew at their fastest pace for three years, in a new sign of growing global demand after last year's recession.

The world's largest exporter says the volume of goods sold abroad increased by 46%.

China's imports also rose strongly, increasing by 44.7% last month.

The big growth in imports was helped by the government's economic stimulus spending.
