TABLE-China's August trade with United States, EU, other key economies

    BEIJING, Sept 7 (Reuters) - China's exports rose for a third consecutive month in
August, eclipsing an extended fall in imports, as more of its trading partners
relaxed coronavirus lockdowns in a boost to the recovery of the world's
second-biggest economy.
    Exports in August rose a solid 9.5% from a year earlier, customs data showed on
Monday, marking the strongest gain since March 2019. The figure also beat analysts'
expectations for 7.1% growth and compared with a 7.2% increase in July.
    Imports however slumped 2.1%, compared with market expectations for a 0.1%
increase and extending a 1.4% fall in July.
    Following is a breakdown of China's exports and imports with its biggest trade
partners in August.
