TABLE-China's June trade with U.S., EU and key economies

BEIJING, July 12 (Reuters) - China's exports fell in June as the United States ramped up trade pressure, while imports shrank more than expected, pointing to further weakness in the world's second-largest economy and slackening global growth. June exports fell 1.3% from a year earlier, not as much as the 2% drop analysts had expected but reversing a surprise gain in May when shippers rushed to beat more U.S. tariffs, customs data showed on Friday. Imports fell 7.3%, a sharper drop than the 4.5% forecast by analysts and following a 8.5% contraction in May, suggesting domestic demand remains tepid despite a flurry of growth boosting measures since last year. Following is a breakdown of China's exports and imports with its biggest trade partners in June.
