Lu Daliang, spokesman of the General Administration of Customs, said that with regard to foreign trade in the second half of the year, he feels both pressure and confidence. At present, inflation in major developed economies is still at a high level, geopolitical conflicts continue, short-term external demand is insufficient to pick up momentum, and China's foreign trade growth is still under great pressure. But at the same time, we must also see that China's economic resilience, great potential, and long-term positive fundamentals have not changed. With a series of policy measures continuing to make efforts, we are confident, have the foundation, and have the conditions to realize the goal of promoting stability and improving the quality of imports and exports.
