For example, Chinese exporters are facing increasing challenges from their peers in both developed and emerging countries as the former are attracting advanced manufacturing back home and the latter are catching up with their low costs.This will require Chinese enterprises to constantly upgrade their technologies and brands to remain competitive, according to Bai Ming, a senior researcher with a Ministry of Commerce think tank.He singled out e-commerce cross-border trade and service trade as the new area that Chinese enterprises may play a larger role.Seeing opportunities in the sectors, the State Council highlighted support for cross-border e-commerce and foreign trade service companies, in addition to the previous plans to advance manufacturing prowess and promote industrial cooperation.On the back of the latest policies, analysts largely predict a modest recovery for trade growth for the latter half of 2015 as the economy is also likely to bottom out and stabilize during the period.Signs of recovery have already emerged. In June, Chinas exports rose 2.1 percent from a year earlier, ending a three-month losing streak, and the decline in imports narrowed to 6.7 percent from an 18.1-percent slump.”We expect real export growth to recover to about 4 percent to 4.5 percent in the second half of the year…but the sharp drop so far led us to mark down our 2015 export growth forecast from 5.5 percent to 2.6 percent,” noted a UBS report.(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Editor:Zhang Ruiqi,Yao Chun)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 8921652;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Related readingVisa policies are relaxed for visitors from ChinaMainland to lift entry-permit policy for Taiwan residentsChinas policy buffers provide time, space for reforms: MoodysChina has multiple policy tools to bolster growth: PremierZhanjiang eyes trade growth with improved port facilitiesMore proactive fiscal policy will be implemented: govtChinas IPR policy to create balanced systemShanghai sees low application rate for second childMinistry confident of stable trade growth in 2015China to strengthen auditing amid major policy shiftsChinas 2012 foreign trade growth slows to 6.2%We RecommendYunnan-Myanmar Road: The past and present
