China-Ukraine trade increased 47 percent to reach 6.9 billion U.S. dollars in the first eight months of 2011, the Chinese Embassy said Monday.

Thus, the aim set by leaders of the two countries to increase the two-way trade to 10 billion U.S. dollars in 2012 may be achieved in 2011, a year earlier, said Luo Weidong, a trade official at the embassy.

China-Ukraine trade amounted to 7.7 billion dollars in 2010.
