China's exports fell 14.6 percent on-year in March to 886.83 billion yuan (about $143 billion), the government said Monday, an unexpected fall and a further sign of weakness in the world's second-largest economy.
Imports also fell, declining 12.3 percent to 868.67 billion yuan on-year, the General Administration of Customs said, while the monthly trade surplus plummeted 62.6 percent to 18.16 billion yuan.
