China's exports have been of great importance not only for China itself, but for the rest of the world as well.
In the span of 15 years China has become the world’s largest exporter, the newspaper reported. The rise of China has massively influenced US, Japanese and European industries and led to a partial de-industrialization of these economies. Their shares in total world exports have changed considerably and, all in all, regressed in varying degrees.
These trends are likely to continue throughout 2015 as the ongoing devaluation of the yuan will make Chinese exports cheaper and more attractive.
However, at the same time, a continued downturn in Chinese growth could spill over to other countries as well, especially to emerging economies.
“If China is unable to come out of its current slump, “vulnerable countries such as Brazil, Russia, Turkey, might topple into more severe crises,” Director of Brazil’s Institute for Economic Policy Studies Monica DeBolle said in an interview with Sputnik.
