BEIJING -- China's imports of major commodities including crude oil, iron ore and soybean climbed in the first eight months of the year, as the country's economic activity gradually recovered from the COVID-19 hit, according to customs data.

The country's soybean imports surged 15 percent from one year earlier to 64.74 million tonnes in the first eight months. About 65.07 million tons of natural gas were imported, up 3.3 percent from the same period last year.

Iron ore imports climbed 11 percent year-on-year to 760 million tons during the period.

The country's total imports of goods fell 2.3 percent to 9 trillion yuan ($131.58 billion) from January-August, compared to a decline of 2.6 percent in the first seven months. The trade surplus expanded 17.2 percent year-on-year to 2.05 trillion yuan.
