Frankly if you read the whole article there are so many conditions and questionable data comments involved that the headline becomes meaningless.
China Eclipses U.S. as Biggest Trading Nation
By Bloomberg News - Feb 10, 2013 12:01 PM GMT-0400.
China surpassed the U.S. to become the world’s biggest trading nation last year as measured by the sum of exports and imports of goods, official figures from both countries show.
U.S. exports and imports of goods last year totaled $3.82 trillion, the U.S. Commerce Department said last week. China’s customs administration reported last month that the country’s trade in goods in 2012 amounted to $3.87 trillion.
