TABLE-China preliminary December commodity trade data

    BEIJING, Jan 12 (Reuters) - China's General Administration of Customs released
preliminary trade data for December on Friday. The tables below show selected commodity
and energy trade volumes, compared with the previous month and a year earlier, as well
as year-to-date figures.
    The previous month and previous year figures do not reflect official revisions,
which have not been provided. The percentage changes for year-to-date figures come
directly from Customs. All other percentage changes are calculated by Reuters. Net
figures are calculated by Reuters, including the percentage changes, even for
year-to-date.
    Detailed final figures from Customs with a further breakdown will be released later
in the month.
