China overtakes Germany as biggest exporter

China overtook Germany as the world’s biggest exporter after exports rose in December for the first time in 14 months, data showed Sunday, in a new sign of the rapid Chinese rise as a global economic force. Chinese exports in the last month of 2009 jumped 17.7 percent from a year earlier

Excerpt from The Jakarta Post.

I’ve been fascinated by China, by its number of people, its culture, and its ability to silently control the world and economy. 17% percent is big number, especially in recession. I think China has already managed the problem and get out of the crisis, even quicker than the States.
