China’s officially-reported food exports to North Korea rose modestly in May, according to public data released Friday by China’s General Administration of Customs (GAC), with total trade more than doubling in value and variety compared to April’s historic lows.
China sent 73 kinds of food products over the border in May, a bounty compared to April’s scant 14 items. The May exports included fresh fruits and vegetables, pork, tea and coffee, preserved goods, confectionery and alcohol, all of which have not been imported for over two months.
