   BEIJING, July 14 (Reuters) - China's imports in June rose for the first time since the
coronavirus crisis paralysed the economy, as government stimulus stoked demand for
commodities, while exports, fuelled by medical goods, also rose in a sign the recovery is
gaining traction.
    Imports rose 2.7% from a year earlier, customs data showed on Tuesday, confounding
market expectations for a 10% drop. Exports also rose unexpectedly, up 0.5%, suggesting
global demand is starting to pick up again as many countries begin to ease tough anti-virus
measures that have pushed the world's economy into its biggest slump in almost 90 years.
    Following is a breakdown of China's exports and imports with its biggest trade partners
in June.
