BEIJING, July 27 (Xinhua) – Foreign trade between Southwest China’s Sichuan Province and members of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) flourished in June this year, setting a record of 1.91 billion yuan in import and export value, a 137.5 percent surge from the total in the previous five months, exceeding the total value of imports and exports from January to May of the year, the latest data from local customs showed.

In May this year, local authorities in Chengdu released the list of key commodities traded in the markets of RCEP members, which brought favorable policies for the development of Sichuan’s foreign trade and promoted a substantial increase in the value of local imports and exports. The list indicates a total of 8,245 commodity categories classified as zero-tariff trading with RCEP member states, offering local enterprises in Sichuan more accurate policy reference for foreign trade.
According to Chengdu Customs, the release of the commodity list has benefited companies in the fields of automobile manufacturing, agricultural products, chemicals, and new energy.
