SHANGHAI, Dec 7 (Reuters) - Shanghai Port, the world's
busiest container port, saw its container volume rise 7.6
percent in November from a year earlier, with the growth rate
picking up for the third straight month, data issued by the
port's operator showed on Friday.
Container throughput reached 2.82 million twenty-foot
equivalent units (TEUs), up from 2.72 million in October. The
year-on-year increase for the month compared with a rise of 1.4
percent in October.
The data comes ahead of China's November trade data due on
Saturday. Economists polled by Reuters expect annual export
growth to slow to 9 percent from a rise of 11.6 percent in
October, while annual imports growth are seen easing to 2
percent last month from October's 2.4 percent increase.
