Shanghai's imports and exports reached a record high of 4.19 trillion yuan (about 619.14 billion U.S. dollars) in 2022, up 3.2 percent from the previous year, local customs said on Thursday.

Last year, Shanghai's import and export volume accounted for 10 percent of China's total foreign trade, according to Shanghai Customs.

Exports of new energy vehicles and lithium batteries were strong in 2022, increasing by 130.1 percent and 360.8 percent to almost 84 billion yuan and 25.41 billion yuan, respectively.
