 Chinese exports to the US dollar in November rose 5.4% from a year earlier, while imports rose 3%, both far below analysts' expectations, official data released on Saturday showed.

 Imports were expected to rise 14.5%, after rising 21.4% in October.
Analysts had expected China's trade surplus to remain flat in November at $ 34 billion, up from $ 34.02 billion in October.
