BEIJING— China's politically problematic trade surplus, which had declined during the past several months, has made a strong comeback.
According to official numbers released on Tuesday, the country's trade surplus grew to $11.4 billion in April, with exports marking a 29.9 percent increase over the same month last year, when many analysts expected it to continue to decline. The news came just on the heels of the first quarter's small trade deficit — a statistical fact rarely noted here in recent years. Experts credited the resurgence in the surplus with a return to typical trade patterns, and not much else new.
"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
