Body-Placeline: Sept. 8 (Bloomberg) -- China's exports increased more than estimated in August, adding to evidence the world's second- largest economy is rebounding after a two-quarter slowdown.
Body: Overseas shipments rose 7.2 percent from a year earlier, the General Administration of Customs said in Beijing today. That compares with the 5.5 percent median estimate of 46 economists surveyed by Bloomberg News and July's 5.1 percent gain. Imports rose a less-than-estimated 7 percent from a year earlier, leaving a trade surplus of more than $28 billion.
