Nearly 20 years ago, Chinese troops swept across the border here and at other points by the hundreds of thousands to punish Vietnam for its growing ties with the Soviet Union and its invasion of China-backed Cambodia. Vietnam's resistance was fierce, and the poorly trained Chinese soldiers got no farther than 20 miles into Vietnamese territory. After 17 days of fighting that left 20,000 dead, China declared victory and went home.

Container terminals in Shenzhen, China, which charge almost a third less for handling cargo than those in neighboring Hong Kong, processed 40% more containers in November as overseas companies bought more China-made products. Shenzhen, China's second-busiest port after Shanghai, handled 980,000 standard 20-foot containers last month, said Gan Huojin, an official at Shenzhen's municipal port bureau. Traffic for the first 11 months of the year also rose 40% to 9.68 million containers.

Trade With China The House voted 223 to 204 to keep China from retaining most-favored-nation trade status as requested by President Bush. The House then extended most-favored-nation trade status to Beijing for another year (below) with conditions opposed by the President. Favored trade status entitles exporters to the lowest U.S. tariffs. Communist regimes receive it only if Congress approves.

Favored trade status entitles exporters to the lowest U.S. tariffs. Communist regimes receive it only if Congress approves. The trade status for China has been losing support on Capitol Hill since the 1989 Tian An Men Square massacre.

Business leaders and officials from the United States and China warned at the opening session of a four-day trade conference Monday that policy disputes could upset nearly a decade of thriving trade between the two nations. Delegates to the U.S.-China Joint Session on Industry, Trade and Economic Development at Beijing's Great Hall of the People applauded the brisk growth in trade, but said that practices by both governments could stall commerce and investment.

Chinese imports and exports fell in January, the first declines in two years and a potential reflection of worsening economic conditions both at home and abroad. Official trade data released Friday showed imports falling 15.3% from a year earlier and exports retreating 0.5%. The nation's trade surplus rose to a six-month high of $27.3 billion. Though both measures were distorted by the week-long lunar new year holiday, the plunge in imports reflected a weakening property sector and a scaling back of infrastructure building.
