Beijing, Feb 8 — China's foreign trade surged 26.7 percent year-on-year in January to 2.17 trillion yuan ($345.59 billion), said authorities Friday.

The rise was bigger than the 10.2-percent growth seen in December, the General Administration of Customs (GAC) said.

After adjustments to seasonal factors, foreign trade volume increased 8.1 percent year on year. There were 22 working days in January, five days longer than last year, GAC said.

China's foreign trade with the European Union rose 10.5 percent year on year last month to stand at $47.14 billion, and trade with the US increased 23.4 percent to $43.72 billion.

Trade with the ASEAN grew 42.9 percent to reach $36.99 billion.
