Meanwhile, the trade volume between the two nations has fallen by 20 per cent from January to April this year on account of trade war between the two largest economies in the world.

From January to April, the trade between the two countries was 1.1 trillion yuan ($173 billion), which is down from 20 per cent in 2017 before they engaged in the trade war, the official data said.
