Vietnam’s import from China in the first eight months of 2014 is expected to grow 17.3 percent year-on-year, according to the country’s general Statistical Office on Tuesday.

Vietnam is forecast to spend some $27.6 billion to import goods from China, said the office, quoted by Vietnam News, the online edition of Vietnam’s state-run news agency VNA.

In January-August, Vietnam is expected to see a deficit of $17.8 billion in trade with China, an increase of 18.5 percent year-on-year.

However, Vietnam is forecast to gain a trade surplus of $1.7 billion from international trade activities as a whole.
