BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s trade surplus with the United States narrowed to $14.72 billion in February, from $27.3 billion in January, customs data showed on Friday.
For January-February combined, China’s trade surplus with the U.S. stood at $42.1 billion.
China’s large trade surplus with the United States has long been a sore point with Washington, and is at the center of a bitter dispute between the two countries.
In 2018, the two governments imposed tit-for-tariffs on goods worth hundreds of billions of dollars.
