USA trade deficit rises on record imports from China

The trade deficit increased to the highest since January and was above expectations of a Reuters poll of economists who had predicted the October deficit would stand at $47.5 billion. USA exports are up 5.3 percent this year; a weaker dollar has made US goods less expensive overseas.

U.S. imports of goods and services rose to the highest on record in October, widening the trade gap to its highest level in nine months, according to government data released on Tuesday (Dec 5).

Good coming into the USA from China, Mexico and the European Union all hit record levels, which boosted the trade gap to $48.7 billion - from $44.9 billion in September- and is the highest since President Trump took office in January.

Imports hit a record $244.6 billion in October, and exports were unchanged at $195.9 billion.

Exports of basic and industrial chemical, plastic and rubber products gained 12.4 per cent, while metal and nonmetallic mineral products increased 4.5 per cent.
