Beijing: China received USD 5.36 billion in foreign direct investment (FDI) in July, down 35.7 percent year on year, said Ministry of Commerce spokesman Yao Jian on Monday.

China`s total export-import volume between January and July decreased by 22.7 percent year on year to USD 1,146.71 billion. Imports and exports volume for July amounted to USD 200 billion, illustrating the falling off in foreign trade, Yao said.

The amount of direct Taiwanese investment in the Chinese mainland totalled USD 1 billion in the first half of the year, down 14.94 percent year on year, and the trade volume between the two shrank 35.1 percent to USD 52.53 billion in the same period, he said.
