China's imports have now been declining for the longest streak in six years. Compared to last year, imports in September were down almost one fifth, or 17.7 percent, reports Bloomberg News.

The continued slide in imports comes in the wake of a 14.3 percent decline in August, and with the numbers from September the Chinese are now facing 11 consecutive months with sliding imports - allegedly the longest period of non-stop decline in six years.
