(Corrects data, months and percent changes throughout) BEIJING, Aug 9 (Reuters) – China’s General Administration of Customs released preliminary trade data for July on Saturday. The table below shows selected commodity and energy trade volumes, compared with a year earlier, as well as year-to-year figures. The percentage changes for year-to-date figures come directly from customs. All other percentage changes are not provided and are calculated by Reuters. Customs has stopped disclosing some items in its preliminary and final trade data tables since 2020, including imports of scrap metal, fuel oil No.5-7 and exports of crude oil, coal and coke.
