China became the world's leading exporters of cultural goods in 2013, outpacing the United States, a UNESCO report showed on Thursday.

据联合国教科文组织3月10日发布的一份报告,2013年,中国就超越美国成为全球最大的文化产品出口国。

A new report by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) pointed out that the total value of China's cultural exports stood at $60.1 billion, more than double that of the United States' $27.9 billion.

这份联合国教科文组织数据研究院(UIS)的最新报告显示,中国文化产品出口总值达601亿美元,比美国的279亿美元高出一倍多。

"Trade in cultural goods totaled $212.8 billion in 2013, nearly double the amount in 2004. This is further evidence of the critical role cultural industries play in today's global economy," said Silvia Montoya, director of the UIS.

联合国教科文组织数据研究院负责人西尔维娅.蒙托亚表示:“2013年文化产品贸易总额达到2128亿美元,几乎是2004年贸易额的两倍,这进一步证明了文化产业在全球经济中扮演的重要角色。”

With advanced countries were still dominating imports of cultural goods, emerging markets bolstered their exports of cultural products with Turkey and India strengthened their position in recent years, joining the world's top 10 exporters of such goods.

发达国家在文化产口进口贸易中依然处于主导地位,与此同时,新兴市场文化产品的出口在增长。土耳其和印度文化产品的出口近年快速增长,已跻身全球十大文化产品出口国行列。

Art and crafts were among the 10 most traded cultural goods. Statues, statuettes and paintings also gained ground with their share of the trade in art and crafts was worth $19 billion in 2013, the report showed.

报告显示,艺术品和工艺品进入贸易额最大的十大文化产品之列。雕塑、小雕像和绘画作品也有了一席之地,2013年它们为艺术和工艺品贸易贡献了190亿美元。

As to gold jewelry, widely considered as "safe harbor in uncertain times," its sales totaled $100 billion over the period.

对于被称为“动荡时期避风港”的黄金首饰来说,它的同期出口额超过1000亿美元。

However, trade in movies shrunk by 88 percent from 2004 to 2013 and traded musical goods also suffered a setback over the period. Meanwhile, audio-visual services as a whole steadily gained ground, the report said.

然而,报告显示,2004年到2013年,电影制品的贸易额下降了88%,同期的音像制品贸易也有所下滑。但与此同时,音像服务业整体还是保持了持续增长。

The downturn in the trade of print products, reflected by the decline in newspapers, books held their ground as an important cultural export in some regions, growing by 20 percent from 2004 to 2013, it added.

报告里补充说,印刷品贸易的不景气反映了报纸的衰落,而图书类产品作为一个重要的文化出口产品,在某些区域保持了地位,2004年到2013年的贸易额增长了20%。
