Abstract

An examination of available data reveals large trade mis-invoicing between China and its trade partners. The analysis finds a net trade mis-invoicing of US$287.6bn between 2000 and 2005, while the full magnitude of unrecorded trade is estimated at US$1.4tn. China needs to establish more effective management of its international trade flows. At the same time, the international community needs to provide more effective governance mechanisms to address trade mis-invoicing.
