BEIJING, May 8 (Reuters) - China’s April exports disappointed analyst expectations, falling 1.8 percent from a year earlier, while imports fell by 10.9 percent, customs data showed on Sunday.

That left the country with a trade surplus of $45.56 billion for the month, the General Administration of Customs said.

Analysts polled by Reuters had expected exports to fall by 0.1 percent, and predicted imports would fall by 5.0 percent. (Reporting by Kevin Yao; Editing by Christian Schmollinger)
