BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s customs said on Monday that the biggest worry in trade this year is external uncertainty and protectionism, forecasting the country’s trade growth may slow in 2019.

China’s economy is still growing steadily in 2019, but it faces external headwinds, said customs spokesman Li Kuiwen at a regular briefing.
