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

    BEIJING, Nov 9 (Reuters) - China exports grew at the fastest pace in 19 months in
October, while imports also rose, official data showed on Saturday, as the world's
second-largest economy continued to recover after being hit hard by the coronavirus crisis
earlier this year.
    Exports in October rose 11.4% from a year earlier, beating analysts' expectations of a
9.3% increase and quickening from a solid 9.9% increase in September.
    Imports rose 4.7% year-on-year in October, slower than September's 13.2% growth, and
underperforming expectations in a Reuters poll for a 9.5% increase, but still marking a
second straight month of growth.
    Following is a breakdown of China's exports and imports with its biggest trade partners
in October.
