The Chinese Commerce Ministry said U.S. purchases during the period represented an 8.2 percent increase from the same period of 2011. During the same period, China imported $119.2 billion of U.S. goods, up 8.1 percent year-on-year.
The total two-way volume of trade between China and the United States of $438.62 billion gave China a trade surplus of more than $200 billion in the 11 months of 2012. That was up sharply from its surplus of $148.3 billion a year ago.
Chinese exports to the European Union declined 4.1 percent in the same 11-month period to $302.3 billion, China Daily reported.
At the same time, China's trade with Japan dropped by 2.9 percent.
China's total foreign trade in the first 11 months of 2012 rose 5.8 percent year-on-year to $3.5 trillion, much less than the government's target of 10 percent.
One analyst told China Daily U.S.-China trade will continue to increase next year as the U.S. economy is recovering.
