Major Exports of China by Product

Source: The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited (HSBC) (2005): HSBC Business Profile Series - China. Hong Kong

Contrary to popular belief China is not primarily an exporter of cheap plastic toys, electronic junk or textiles. In fact, the most important export products are machinery and transport equipment. Agricultural products contribute only a very small share of China's exports. In fact, 93% of China's exports in 2004 where manufactured goods. With this export profile, China is not comparable with most other developing countries which are typically exporting raw products, such as crude oil, natural gas, minerals or agricultural products.
