China’s major exports are electromechanical products and labor-intensive products. The goods that fall into these categories include optical, technical and medical apparatus, clothing, textiles, footwear, furniture, plastic products and toys. High-tech products account for 29 percent of China’s exports.

China’s main export partners are the United States, Japan, South Korea, the European Union and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. China’s export growth is a major component to their rapid economic expansion and makes up 30 percent of the country’s gross domestic product, which amounted to more than $13 trillion in 2013.

The low unemployment rate in China could be attributed to the large number of labor-intensive products that the country exports.
