China’s Trading Partners

I just saw this on Reddit – specifically, the subreddit MapPorn, as submitted by Redditor babamcrib. The map is by chineserelations.net. Here are countries of the world where China is the #1 trading partner (red), #2 (orange) or #3 or lower (yellow). Incredible. Can’t attest to the accuracy of the data, but it seems legit.

  1. Data is via wikipedia, for example – en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_Oman
    I had to calculate figures on exports and imports independently and then add them up.
    Expect changes to this map (I think Indonesia will turn red) when trade data for 2013 comes out.

    1. Wow, thanks for letting me know. That must have taken a long time to get all the data! It’s a great image, and I hope you’ve seen it pinging round the internet. It’s one of the most instantly informative images on China’s economy I’ve ever seen.
