Chinese shoppers and Christmas decorations are reflected in mirrors inside a shopping mall in Beijing Monday, Dec. 10, 2012. China's trade weakened sharply in November, adding to challenges for the world's second-largest economy as a gradual recovery takes shape. Export growth plunged to 2.9 percent over a year earlier from the previous month's 11.6 percent, customs data showed Monday. Imports were flat, down from October's 2.4 percent growth.
