BEIJING, Jan 10 (Reuters) - China's trade picture could be modestly brighter this year compared to 2012, the customs office said on Thursday.
China's exports grew an annual 7.9 percent in 2012 while imports rose 4.3 percent. The government had targeted 10 percent annual rise in foreign trade last year.
Exports rose 14.1 percent in December from a year ago to hit a seven-month peak, rebounding from three-month lows.
